Van Gogh 'God took a terrible lot of trouble with this world study of his'
Van Gogh says the whole world’s a painting study;
with form and colour, pencil dust
roughly pushed by fingers into arcs
on paper, shining, planned, unplanned.
loving the action of it,
(and all the time it took)
I bet it feels good to taste
and smell and see
all the nascent parts
emerge and, listening, be.
