You Don’t Need to be Van Gogh to Paint an Inner Starry Night

Paint a constellation of stars on the ceiling of your inner skull.

Be sure to include a North Star to guide you safely through these days and nights of private sorrows and public shootings, political criminals and America’s windmills tilting and battling themselves.

Paint a universe of glowing introspection to guide you wisely through these days of rising racism and declining unity.

Homelessness and hunger, cynicism and suicides.

With a steady hand, paint galaxies of gleaming lights braided into glorious words to sail across your inner atmosphere like optimistic skywriting.
