His Gifts Be Known... Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent, yours is a world known to me
As I grasp at this meaning of Be
Light and fields, people and purpose defined
I in plea proclaim do not confine
Bar restraint and perception veiled
Vincent your gift of knowing has prevailed
With awe and sighs anew your art so perceived
And blessed for the inexplicable conceived.

Vincent Van Gogh, 1853-1890.

Vincent Van Gogh perceived the vibrating energy of light and life itself. He captured the quivering, pulsing fields that embraced his vision. All was moving, all was dimension, all was effect. I experienced the deepest of pleasure in being present with Van Gogh's original works on exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC.
