the sugar sweet strawberry red sunset
fired burnt crimson images into my soul
delving deep into the recesses of my mind
as the emotions spilled out coffee conversations
the deafening silence between us
with the intent to resolve the unresolvable
what happens when one comes to an impasse
when view of the other ceases to exist
when the ego takes over and only resists
where does the imagination take one’s heart
where no compromise can be reached
how painful is that brick wall
concussion dead center in the middle of disbelief
smiling and talking one day
and then it disappears in a flash
the strawberry red sunset transforms
the heart into a bleeding gash

The painting and thoughts are both breathtaking and beautiful, Johann. Thought provoking in their intense emotions, too.
Thank you, Robin, for your very kind compliment. The painting was done a long time ago–1982, I believe…I think it leaves a lot to be desired! 🙂 But I am pleased it touched you in some way. The words…very real…In any case, thank you for visiting and the time you give to my little space in this world. Sincerely, Jane.
