V is for Van Gogh

Sunflowers Vincent Van Gogh

When Van Gogh Dreamt

he saw fields full of sunflowers nod
their patient heads like cows that huddled under the broad
leaves.He noticed how the softest of gusts
would comb over turned manes.

It was summer
and the world fell under the spell of drenching heat
that swirled the stars dancing over dark and fallow fields.

It was summer,
and clouds cast in silver filled spaces.
Cowbells echoed into heat-cured pastures and hay was gathered
by callused sun-worn hands.

It was summer
and the sunflowers bowed complacent in an earthenware
vase. The air was heavy with rain
as he gathered his tools and made the canvas
into a net in which to catch
elusive yellow the moment before it
