    acid trip
    a decidedly unusual
    starry night

    —MARIANNE PAUL

    I've certainly written a lot of haiku and haibun around Vincent van Gogh, but never combined snow and that wonderful painting I had the privilege to see up close in Amsterdam and London.

    I love the idea, and have experienced, pop-up snowstorms! And I've experienced the swirls of Van Gogh's brushstrokes when I couldn't believe it, but I was able to be a couple of millimetres away from his wheatfields painting, and it had no glass front. The brushstrokes continue to be mesmerising the closer you get to them.

    the snow falls
    out of itself

    Nice…

    Faithful is a phenomenon
    To its resurrection …
    Where are we remembered?!
