Streams of Amber

Wheat Field with Rising Sun, Vincent Van Gogh, 1889, for Magpie Tales 72

Streams of Amber

When love’s fingertips brush against the straw,
streams of purple, amber and golden tears flow,
trickling down to hungry souls
and dripping into an earth
permeable to tears of human feet
and ambered grace of grains turned
into red white and blue frosted
independence day cakes


Submitting the above for One Shot Wednesday at and for Magpie Tales 72

  1. “…streams of purple.” You really captured the vibrant colors of Vam Gogh’s work.

  2. Yikes! Sorry about the typo. Or perhaps I was talking about his cousin, Vincent vAM Gogh?
