Cool! Great comparison with the painting and the wetlands you had witnessed in New Jersey.
When Karen organised a week in Amsterdam, in the Museum Quarter, (September 2015) we didn't know there was the Van Gogh/Munch comparative exhibition with a terrific party! We decided to go to the launch party much later, as the other wing was incredibly quiet and I had wheatfields to myself for a long time.
Since then I've published numerous haiku. I also had published two haibun about the Tate Britain "EY EXHIBITION VAN GOGH AND BRITAIN" exhibition (27 MARCH – 11 AUGUST 2019) using a new 'haiku/haibun' writing technique.
But here is my very first Amsterdam Van Gogh Museum haiku which I posted onto my Area 17 blog rather than have it published:
the crows changing
into their colours
It was written that way because there was no glass protection and I could lean in to about two millimetres away. I had asked permission! :-)
The brushstrokes are as detailed and vivid close up and I could see how the crows 'emerged' from the wheat or the wheat 'created' the crows.
