Amended-Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'

A Van Gogh's "Starry Night"

gamboge moon and stars
dance haloed whirlwind marriage
in violet sky

while black cypress looms
past swirling clouds as fleeting
requiem for love

through bright starry eyes
secluded heart still searches
unrequited.

Congrats dear Deborah on your first place win! I love Van Gogh's Starry Night and your beautiful haiku has a dream-like quality just like the painting. I could read it again and again so it is a must for my faves! I hope you have a great weekend. Love and Blessings, Rhonda
