Starry night



                                                     "Starry Night"   Vincent van Gogh

starry night  
above rice fields, hills,  
white summer

~0~0

shooting stars
lighting midnight sky,
lantern sun

~0~0

wishing well
pocket full of coins,
moonlit face
     

~0~0

midnight dance   
full of promises, 
starry night


and for Theme Thursday:

ice cream swirls
chocolates, mints, nuts,   
melting blues 

melting blues
topped with strawberries,  
sweet as you

  1. Grace, I really love how you wrote about Van Gogh's "Starry Night." Just beautiful. And truly, I can picture some of those clouds as ice cream flavors as well -- what a creative thinker you are to imagine that!

    starry night

    Such a nice picture you have painted with your words in this haiku.

  16. Wonderful! I have to agree, the swirling style Van Gogh used in this painting does remind me of ice cream swirls.

  17. Strawberries and icecream yum. A midnight dance that is full of promises is my kind of dance and night. Nicely done. Thanks for visiting my blog.
