Monet at Night

My Post - 2019-04-04T214836.517Monet at Night

Restless in his sleep
dreaming of pastels and muted seams
lasting into the night
as he chases away the darkness
holding for the light of day

ever charging his mind
into the day of light

Is it any wonder
when I first saw his works
Monet made me cry
