Magpie #72 His Eyes Cried Colours

His eyes cried colours
dripping from phalo sockets
Brightest blue in the box

His hair screamed crimson red
while his palette afire paled
in comparison; the man to the art

His freckled skin spoke human
Along with the one lopped-ear missing
A more heart-felt man then he; never found

His dream unfolded too
into this undulating unity
under his foot the earth touched the spiral skies

His Twirling energy swirling
his musk a fragrance in the field
into a world unknown to become; the dream

His art; His craft; His life raft
this shaman-priest mish~mash~maker
Alchemy's well-oiled magician

His Life; our gift
after death after post impressionism
lives this artist as dream~wish~maker

Please find him alive again
under the corn fields where he laid
down his brushes to take up the cross
