tt 35: waiting for Theo; first date


, , , ,


sliver of a van Gogh moment
blurring cafés and centuries
waiting for Theo; waiting for you
turning right to left; death to life (125 characters; 23 words)


I arrive early; reconnoiter
he is leaning against wall
looking casual
I blend into neon blur
to watch before
we meet; first date (123 characters; 23 words)

    oh starry starry nights …. and well, I could just blather on, but your words paint the picture perfect scene – traveling time from there to here and now and yet also speaking of now to then … and well, we have discussed Vincent many a time …. and you know how I feel 🙂

    great TT!

    • Thanks — yes Vincent does hold a special place. I just so much saw his cafe picture in a mirrored right to left. Thought of waiting for Theo, thought of how it might have been. Dr. Who episode and all that.

        I too saw the image and my went in exactly the same direction 😀

        • I wanted to add that lovely animation of Van Gogh’s paintings, but I lost the link. Have you seen it? Probably been on your blog, even.

            if it was on one of my blogs, it’s gone 😦 – when I empty blog, I empty a blog …. that’s me – destroy destroy destroy then create again; it’s rare I keep anything on file ….

  3. Love how this two part tale flows. I believe there is more to the story! 😉
