Almond Blossoms


The blossoms that Vincent van Gogh
Painted so long, long ago
Have not lost their sheen;
They’re still white and clean
As almond blooms should be: like snow.

  8. I love going to art galleries and viewing paintings as they tell us so much about the past without one word being spoken.

  9. Beautiful forever white and clean like snow

  10. Interesting example of a serious thought expressed in limerick form. (Somehow the limerick form still gives it a “light” air…)
