Painting Eternity

December 2, 2007 § 1 Comment

“Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence.” – Vincent van Gogh


A flower may blossom, wither
And then die without anyone
Ever seeing or knowing its
Beauty…


But the artist can look at
The flower and freeze it in
Time – Paint it onto canvas
To live a thousand lifetimes


And a thousand generations
Will look upon the flower
And see the beauty it had
To offer


A beauty that once-
Blossomed, withered,
And died a long time ago….


And maybe some will say
To their selves – I wonder what
The artist was thinking of-


As she froze a moment in
Time – and painted eternity

~A gift to me
