Foreign Country

He couldn’t be captured in a phrase
Or one hundred…

He was like no one,

He was like a foreign country
That you travelled through
Eerie landscapes and glistening lakes
Towards horizons
Camouflaged in mists
Precluding
Happiness
once felt
And dreamed about.

He was like a giant umbrella
In bright colors
Protective of winds and shadows
Bandaging unseen wounds
In tenderness and
Love.

Art – Harald Sohlberg

Reposting an old poem written in 2015

Moonlight by the Sea

I once said that I could write a poem for each and every one of Harald Sohlberg’s paintings.
They break the silence of the words unspoken but so solemnly thought in the whirlwind of gold whispering leaves blown away in the opera of mellow sunsets.

What is the light without a moon

And the moon without the light?

The light is what we crave

But moon is what we see.
