blue moon

why am I reminded

of Mount Fuji?

.

in French:

.

lune bleue –

pourquoi me rappelle-t-elle

le mont Fuji ?

.

and in Romanian :

.

lună albastră

de ce îmi aminteşte

de Muntele Fuji ?

.

I wrote this haiku as a response to the painting  by André Derain: Mountains at Collioure, 1905, posted on FB by  Virginia Popescu (see here).

Virginia very kindly, and enthusiastically, translated my haiku into French and Romanian! Once again, thank you, Virginia! I like this idea!

You can see Virginia Popescu and other poets’ responses to paintings, and indeed contribute to her project yourself, on her FB page here
