World famous painting haiku - Van Gogh's Starry Night


quiet night
a genius artist's trailblazing
strokes

quiet night
the heavens swirl
in the birth of a star


trailblazing strokes
the artist's genius
blossoms in the sky

quiet night
the sky blossoms with
the artist's genius

a country quietly sleeps
while the heavens swirl
in the birth of a star

silence pierces the sky
as the heavens swirl
in the birth of a star

Starry Night
Van Gogh's talent sweeps away
the stars

a country sleeps
through one artist's
starry dream

Starry Night
a genius trailblazes
through the sky

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
