amsterdam is

amsterdam is the colour of naples on a yellow summer afternoon when the rain has just washed my forehead clean of the anxiety that last winters brush scratched across it.

amsterdam is fine, oil, colours of warmth.

amsterdam is where i am.

with a canvas, palette and brushes.

and all the colours of my imagination
working their way around my head -
sometimes as a wreath i can touch;
othertimes a halo that touches me.

I have other memories of Amsterdam:) Very clear and lucid memories I might add, in case anyone thinks it was all hazy for me at the time.

a friend visited me and i was busy with paints and canvas... a whole range of new paints called amsterdam.. so it was meant to be a play on that idea... an extension of what has become a private joke between us.. not so private no more :P

sigh... amsterdam. perhaps i will. perhaps i shall. someday...
