Starry Night by Alex Ruiz

Artist, in field 
stood, as if affixed.
About to devote, yield
himself to posterity. 

So alone, he mused...

Forever it seemed, I
lived in reality
only to at last "see"--
and this night--
faced the Universe...


Great circles of reality
lived always nowhere else...
but within my soul, my self. 

While I'd been looking out,
yes, apart, away from--
Now I am a part OF 
all which ever created.

This scene I MUST show
to my brother Theo,
(named for "God" Who lives.)

("But HOW?"
 "Paint, man! PAINT!")

In manner described as Starry Night--
He oil-spread circularity Eternity,
ALL being such colorful ONE.

Beauty Unbelievable
for you and me akin
for truth within.



  1. Wow, you've outdone yourself here. Touched on the emotions, the soul, the being...

  2. when we finally come face to face with...and can see that truth...its a beautiful thing, now isnt it brother? van gogh was certainly touched...to produce what he did...a bit of perhaps the magic od creation

  3. Steve,

  10. steve - when i was in paris a few months ago i stood before this painting by van gogh - starry night - it is spell-binding - i couldn't take my eyes off it... actually i wanted to walk into it and just stay there... van gogh once said that for him the night has more color than the day... and after seeing that painting i knew what he meant... a bit of eternity for us to taste maybe...
