Carpe Diem #675, House (au Auvers)


Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a lovely month we have had this February and what a joy it will be to go on with images next month, but than made by yourself, because next month it is haiga-festival month. Of course I will give you all more time to respond, I will prolong the time to respond with 24 hours.

Ok back to today's prompt House (au Auvers) a wonderful painting (post-impressionism) by Vincent Van Gogh. In his last years he lived at Auvers were he has painted a lot of Auvers houses and I couldn't decide which to use, so I have chosen for a not so well known painting of a House au Auvers by Van Gogh.

It's a wonderful painting and I think you can see that this painting is from the post impressionism time. It's more a realistic image and not an impression. I think this is one of his most beautiful paintings and I think it will inspire you all ... in a great way.

I have tried to catch an "impression" of the painting in this haiku and I even have tried to bring in a few Writing Techniques e.g. karumi and wabi sabi. I don't know if I have succeeded, but I like this haiku a lot.

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until March 1st at noon (CET). I will try to publish our next episode, The Orchard, later on. For now ... have fun, be inspired and share your haiku (or tanka) with us all.

    growing as the seasons turn;
    organic farm-hold.

  2. Love this painting. It is special isn't it. The Netherlands must be very proud of producing such a genius.
