Gauguin’s Landscape with Peacocks

L.T. Garvin

The sky is on fire

ruby red sunset

streaked with desire

as if painted fish

swim the the mountains

A path spilling from the hills

brimming fiery, red clay

its flame builds in dusk

Ah, divide the world

into sunsets

Here the village sits

a map point

in jungle dense

magnificent

On the edge

of unresolved dreams

this sultry peace

crowded with lush

competitors

At the intersection of

secluded moments

peacocks

shrill in their strut

vault of heaven

inside their plumage

await Hera’s chariot
