“I experience a period of frightening clarity in those moments when nature is so beautiful. I am no longer sure of myself, and the paintings appear as in a dream.” 

― Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh knew 

the value of blue, 

the gift of sunny

blooms, the elegant,

refracted texture

of light  —

and I sigh in kindred 

admiration for this 

simple bouquet

recessed in a little window,

and I understand why 

he felt compelled to paint,

to reflect something of the

loveliness that speaks,

to clarify the beauty

that overwhelms

us in this life.
