Passion – Reading Van Gogh 10: A Pair of Muddy Shoes


10. A Pair of Muddy Shoes
The broken heart
was buried beneath
a pair of muddy shoes, yet
passion survived —
with the vibrantly captured
contrast, love
shines
through
every flash of
dazzling
high-
lights

  1. yunyi, it takes a fellow artist like yourself to recognize and point out the golden light, like a halo, Van Gogh painted around these humble shoes. Now I have to quote one of my aphorisms: “There is no mundane object which is not at the same time a miracle.”

  2. Yunyi, this might sound kind of crazy, but when I see shoes on the side of the road or at the site of an accident, their contrast with the asphalt and sunny sky always stirs something deep within me to acknowledge the quiet strength and resilience of that which is left behind.
