" The Water Wagon and Van Gogh Sun "

 

The Water Wagon

Running after the water wagon
Dusting down the meandering roads
Through fruit orchards
And blossoms fallen.

Little daughters
Of Italian and Portuguese immigrants
And the wee boys of the families
Of the Valley of the Heart's delight -
This Santa Clara Valley.


Van Gogh Sun

Without you
What of this coming day
Without you
To walk my way

There will be no sun
As Van Gogh saw
Only Wheat fields gloomed
With the Blackbirds caw

Nor stars to shine
Sans winds to blow
For this, a love lost 
For all to know...

( "Wheat Fields With Crows" -
Painted 1890 by Vincent Van Gogh
Dutch 1853-1890 )
