World Famous Painting Haiku - Van Gogh's Sunflowers


sunflowers
eleven siblings
of different shine

sunflowers
a foresaken genius and
his passion

sunflowers -
a hundred years to
blossom in our heart

sunflowers
the child says they have the
same painitng in the house


haiku two:

sunflowers
shoving
for attention

haiku three:

sunflowers
the fortunate ones got
painted bright yellow

haiku four:

sunflowers
where should we
turn to?

haiku five:

sunflowers
a matter of
artistry

(definitely van gogh got
some of the worst looking blooms
but his spirit is there, so
sunflowers became famous)

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
