“There she stands with the one in her hands,
listening to the world wrapped
in red rubber bands.
Aware of the sounds she does not hear,
stepping on mushrooms which may not appear.
Her vision is hovering like a bird in a tree,
she often wishes the world
just let her be.
Weathering the storms which may not develop,
She gives, she lives, stumbles, and sways
Burrows, or borrows, bursting with grey,
Happy and hurt, bubbly, and shallow
Full, not rested, tested, and hollow.
Too many things to list in a verse
told not to worry, just empty your purse.
We may forget her name
when we kick, slap, and hurt one another,
One word never changes and that is mother.” -soix

The Post Impressionists: Paul Gauguin (2006) - Art Documentary
Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (7 June 1848 — 8 May 1903) was a leading French Post-Impressionist artist who was not well appreciated until after his death. Gauguin was later recognized for his experimental use of colors and synthetist style that were distinguishably different from Impressionism. His work was influential to the French avant-garde and many modern artists, such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Gauguin’s art became popular after his death and many of his paintings were in the possession of Russian collector Sergei Shchukin.
He was an important figure in the Symbolist movement as a painter, sculptor, print-maker, ceramist, and writer. His bold experimentation with coloring led directly to the Synthetist style of modern art, while his expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings, under the influence of the cloisonnist style, paved the way to Primitivism and the return to the pastoral. He was also an influential proponent of wood engraving and woodcuts as art forms.
