Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a lovely month we have had this February and what a joy it will be to go on with images next month, but than made by yourself, because next month it is haiga-festival month. Of course I will give you all more time to respond, I will prolong the time to respond with 24 hours.
Ok back to today's prompt House (au Auvers) a wonderful painting (post-impressionism) by Vincent Van Gogh. In his last years he lived at Auvers were he has painted a lot of Auvers houses and I couldn't decide which to use, so I have chosen for a not so well known painting of a House au Auvers by Van Gogh.

I have tried to catch an "impression" of the painting in this haiku and I even have tried to bring in a few Writing Techniques e.g. karumi and wabi sabi. I don't know if I have succeeded, but I like this haiku a lot.
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until March 1st at noon (CET). I will try to publish our next episode, The Orchard, later on. For now ... have fun, be inspired and share your haiku (or tanka) with us all.
