dancing in grove


olive trees by Van Gogh


mediterranean sun

pulsing rhythm

warm yellow sky

radiates, ripens

music of olives

leaves quiver

trees wave arms

trunks sway hips

shadows of oil

flow to sound

of cool blue

pyrenees bass

    Nice description of “Olive Trees” especially the trunks swaying hips.

    Quite a challenge, working with such short lines – each one has to be perfect, each word has to play its part! I think you did it splendidly – and of course, I love the sun and movement of Van Gogh and Provence!

    the music of impressionism – no wonder we are drawn to what we cannot quite see here

    The short sentences mimics the short brush strokes of the Impressionists. I’ll look at an olive a bit differently now, imagining its source.

    I adore “music of olives”. This is a fun lyrical dance in the grove for sure!
