Tulips field by Vincent Van Gogh (?)

dreaming of Holland
miles of tulips and canals
Vincent Van Gogh

colourful bells
lined up in sunny fields
tulip farm

 happy bees buzzing
in and out of coloured bells
silent music

Writing about Tulips for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

This week we also have a lovely renga based on the poppy … the hokku in the form of a wonderful haiga was written by Suzanne of Art and Life

bright on the grass

echos of long lost battles
Helen and Cassandra lost

Troy’s refugees
sailed for far off Sicily
Rome’s ancestors

Virgil in his famous Aeneid tells of the founding of Rome … the link will take you to a site which has lots of material on the subject!
