Split Personality


the 11 of 12 given words:
flesh drifted veiled rose gem pearl 
scarce page sand clay split 

a chunk of flesh
separated from the image
chosen and drifted out 

moved to the side 
not veiled or covered
but rose menacingly
a gem of a personality
a pearl of nature

a scarce item 
a page picked out
not to be placed in the sand
or entombed in clay
such is the idea
of a split personality

waiting for a bid
on its being

Gloaming Lightly

                                                                                        Author: Gloaming Lightly by van Gogh

Rays of the Afternoon Sun (here)

the 12 given words:
wonder smudge conjuring
gloaming (the time of day when it is becoming dark but is not yet fully dark)
seeds emerge hours prayers chances
grateful whispered stained

to wonder at the strained images that often
smudged his mind conjuring a complex mixture
of colours and shapes that surprisingly blended
well within the gloaming rays that unashamedly 
intruded from the outside through the window panes

grateful for all the seeds of imagined stories
that emerged from hours of  prayers in creating masterpieces 
where chances were gratefully acknowledged  
to painstakingly provide relief whispered 
for his brilliant but stained and tragic life
