We love it when our guests send us original works related to Vincent van Gogh. The following wonderful poem was sent to us from Liam ó Comáin of Ireland.

Vincent by Liam ó Comáin

night was important
lack of light
compensated
through visual
memory

the principle
of contrast

its vitality
its flux
its constancy

sunflowers
irises
blossoming
almonds
a few of
the creme
de la creme

Liam ó Comáin
