Well, I'm pleased to have been your source of inspiration! This is sooo good! You deserve an espresso!Kat
Your poem is terrific...artwork and poetry often go hand-in-hand! Thanks so much for joining this great event. Very nice to meet you and find your creative space here. :o)
I realize I only have 6 syllables in the last line. Oh well.
It's ok to break the rule. You did a fine piece with clearconnection! Thanks for stopping by!
Well, technically with haiku we should have something that represents one of the 4 seasons, so we've both fallen down on that account. I don't see how you could change the line without compromising the piece. It's still great.Kat
Lovely. More when I can.xo Susan
great piece...the sword releasing...love it
I love it and think it is perfect. that last syllable is silent, like the pact of silence in the first line... thanks for visiting and having me over!
Very nice :). Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Yes, I noticed at once your nod to Poetikat.This is such fun - all of us bouncing off one another's ideas and creativity.
WOW! That's beautiful. I wanted to keep reading it. Love it! Thanks for stopping by to read my Haiku! Golden labs are the best. Oh and by the way....great blog too. I'll return :)
Beautiful...very inspiring! Off to check out your links above.
I'd never seen your first painting before! I realise I forgot all about seasons! As you say........ oh well!
Your blog is beautiful, such lovely images - congratulations!
The first picture is by Gauguin. Cool, eh. Another artist's rendering of Van Gogh.
very coollove Lea's comment about the silent syllable...xox - eb.
Ooh! How erotic!
Well, we've all heard it, but I'd like to say it again. This is one of the most fascinating photos. Usually I don't like abstract or every other painting done by famous artists.
One of the reasons, I've always loved the starry night, is the "star" aspect of it i.e. space! Who knows, if this was intentional i.e. fascination with space and stars
Coooool!I'd think your Haiku includes "Kigo: season word(s)" properly from our point of view. "Starry night" That's it! I have no idea what Haiku poets in your country would think of the words, though in original Haiku, "starry night" is considered to be a "Kigo" for autumn.In this case, the very title of Van Gogh's masterpiece where both stars and the moon obviously shining, that is "Hoshidukuyo" which is the title of the masterpiece in Japanese.Hoshi=stars, duku=moon, and yo=night. And this "Hoshidukuyo" is a famous kigo for autumn.
Sapphire, Great - that's really interesting. I really had no idea. Thanks
Interesting conversation here! It seems your cool haiku works seasonally, as well!
What I like about haiku is that there is structure to follow, even if created by oneself, yet after Japanese traditional. I feel like making this a pastime now. Your haiku is one of those that needs thinking about, but, then, most do, which is the point, is it not?
I love you Vincent inspired Haiku! The Starry Night is one of my favorite paintings in the world. When I saw it here in NY, I stared at it for over ten minutes. The sheer beauty of it is amazing.
Love the haiku. Love The Starry Night. Love the conversation. Fascinated by the whole sad, sordid tale that inspired it all.Thank you.
Hi.I'm thinking "starry night" can be a kigo for autumn in a way apart from "hosidukuyo". Didn't he paint "The Starry Night" in September 1889? but I'm not sure. If you can pinpoint when he painted it, you would be able to figure out the night sky of what month. Since your Haiku is obviously based on the artist, "starry night" can be a cool kigo with a coded message.
Love this, I had never seen the Gaugin image. Thanks for sharing the poetry and art.
