oh, van gogh!

Starry Night by Van Gogh

Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

lonely dutch artist

paints his view from asylum

seeking blue-hued peace


thoughts like colors swirl

calm by beauty of bright moon

dark tree gives balance


roiling emotions

mind’s sky illuminated

brush-stroked starry night

Missed linking to prompt on CDHK but inspired to write this set…my 300th post!

    Lynn, I am so happy for you, the big 300! Your haiku on van Gogh are lovely. Did you know that the way he painted stars is, scientifically, the way they actually move? So who is “disturbed,” right? Man, I should be so disturbed!! (Although, technically, my psychiatrist would say… LOL) Amy

    Congrats on 300. I look forward to meeting van Gogh in heaven–he has inspired so many.
