Archduke’s old pond
turtle’s pink and blue paths
water lilies


reflecting night skies
fields atwinkle with fireflies
young lovers embrace

This post is written for two prompts at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai (I’m still trying to catch up!!!) Water Lilies:

Water Lilies - Claude Monet

Claude Monet

and Starry Night:

Vincent Van Gogh

The prompts written to accompany these two wonderful paintings can be found HERE (Water Lilies) and HERE (Starry Night) apart from the explanation of what one must do, and some lovely haiku examples,  there is also a very interesting piece about the life of Van Gogh ..well worth stopping to read it!
