Inspired by a Song – Haiku 5.7.5 – Dark

Wind In The Trees – Original Watercolor Painting ©Carolina Russo


There is a dark Forest
Run into the trees following my eyes
I hear a girl voice…


Haiku 5.7.5
Inspired by the words of the song “A Forest” Written by ©Robert Smith -THE CURE


Hope the New Year found you all well!
Today post is my first Haiku of the 2019 and I have to say that I wrote this Haiku in a whim right after I read the Haiku posted by my dear friend Cyranny, you can read it at her Blog Cyranny’s Cove!  She inspired me to create my Haiku using the words of one of my favorite songs, I also illustrated the Haiku with  one of my older watercolor paintings (Prints available in my Shop!)  I loved to do this and to write my Haiku I actually played a bit with the words and I have changed the sequence from the official lyrics but I was able to keep the sense and meaning of the words in the original song!   Check it out this is the beautiful song “A Forest”  of The Cure…I found a video that has the lyric on screen!

I think this is a great idea if you love music and love to write Haiku it is pretty challenging to create a Haiku from the words of a song…Sure it is a good practice I suggest you to pick your favorite song and try!  What do you think?

Thank You!

      1. Thank you Erika yes there are lots of meanings in it and if my painting speaks to you then sure you will benefit from it in your home! I will hand enhance the print for you for no extra fee so it would be more of one of a kind and special! Size is 8×10 inches (approx. 20 x 25 cm) which is the best for this painting price $35 + $6 shipping I also offer a smaller size in case.

  1. It is so cool to see that my silly haiku inspired you, Carolina 🙂 I had fun writing it, and I have a feeling it won’t be the last! It such a fun variation of the traditional haiku… Oh, and I love the painting you chose to accompany yours! Such a mysterious piece…
