Grief (tanka)*

mourning deaths calling~

sisters in sorrow wailing~

children sacrificed ~

victims of mans power play~

useless wars never ending


*Note: the violin for me can evoke so much emotion, it can make your soul weep.

      1. Yes true, the whole painting is beautiful. I chose to use only the center panel, well because it spoke louder. πŸ˜‰ than the whole. I like quite a few of his paintings and I believe he had a wide spectrum of styles.

      2. Of course, more impact in a sole panel but a different interpretation without the four strings πŸ˜‰
        Agreed. They had him listed under art nouveau. He went beyond that definition.


  1. Beautiful & meaningful words. Unfortunately, this video / link isn’t available in DK. I wish I could listen to the melody…


    1. I sometimes get the message here that the video is unavailable. So Go to YouTube and type in sad violin in the search bar. It will have a photo of a full moon. This more often than not works for me. Have a great day! Thank you for reading. πŸ™‚
