Haiku About Vincent Van Gogh

Starry night Van Gogh
eyes of China blue with slice
of ear missing too

    Anyone intelligent and has artistic background has their own mental problem. I know I do – because I am such an artist! Yes, now you know. 🙂

      I know what you mean.

      I’ve always wondered at times if I’m bipolar.

      Because I’m up and happy one day.

      Then sad and depressed the next.

      Yet there is no external forces acting that’s responsible for either feeling on those two different days.

        There are times when I told my daughters that I wish sometimes that I can be a simple-minded person, but I am a person with the gift of intelect and sometimes being “intelectual” is a curse rather than a blessing. Knowing too much sometimes cause you depression that comes from everywhere for the truth of knowlegde sometimes leads your heart elsewhere. I know that part of me being a writer or an artist wanting so much to make my world as beautiful as it can be because the reality outside of the world in my writings are pretty ulgy and full of sorrows of all kinds – it is were not mine, then it is the suffering of the world that breaks you, you know.

        I understand completely on what you mean if you have bipolar because I know I’ve the same problem with myself more than I do with other people. I am somehow complicated in my own ways and my complications bring forth all the creativities out of me and I guess that is why I can do many things all at once, but later I know I have nervous breakdown somehow. I cannot help it but I am always on the move on being active.

        Too proud to be oneself, I think, and that can cause real problem. I try hard to be humble and be gentle with myself. It is also through writings that helps me to undo my heartache and troublesome mind. 🙂

      I suppose that’s it, Sherrie.

      In reality, I don’t think I’m truly bipolar.

      I just think too much.

      Being an artist myself, I’d like the world to be a beautiful place and it isn’t sadly.

      So I suppose it gets me down at times.

      Like you, I find writing to be therapeutic.

      So I guess we both have to struggle through each day and hope that neither our sanity nor a piece of our ear winds up on the floor. 🙂

    And being a writer I can understand the others like you in so many ways. We may have our own stories, but we are all one mind and one heart as a writer – be it pro writer or amatuer – we are all one but the same. 🙂
