Spring Paintings by Kinkade--By David Austin--United States

Spring Paintings by Kinkade

purple sky at eve
a log cottage by a stream
with windows aglow

after Vietnam
my old familiar path home
lights and chimney smoke

lilac carnival
decorates each city block
it must be springtime

a splendid stone bridge
arched over a placid flow
june night memory

blue wildwood steeple
with many a wagon track
june morning service

dusk in the city
rain soaked streets thrusting up light,
cars, shops and people

  1. You have painted a beautiful visual here Daver - a joy reading you today. Your words are always so comforting, bringing the reader wanting to read you again...

    Rhoda Galgiani

  2. Dear Daver (alliteration)

    As vivid as it gets.


  3. Thank you, Connie Marcum Wong, for the following comment--

    David, the light projected by his paintings pales in comparison to the vivid imagery of your poetic words. Just beautiful!

    Blessings, Lotus

    The peace and nostalgia I find in Kinkade's painting are reflected in this poem.
