Second Haiga

Two months ago I tried something new, haiga.  I introduced the form like this:

Haiga is a Japanese concept for simple pictures combined with poetry, usually meaning haiku…It can be watercolor paintings, photographs or collages with a poem of any genre that is integrated into the composition. Sometimes the poem is handwritten or it can be computer generated, depending on the artist’s taste.

Haiga is a combination of visual image and poetry, each to enrich the other and, ultimately, to lead the reader/viewer beyond what is presented toward what their own life experience suggests.

Here is the second batch. The first is from a former life of mine, then a series using photos taken in Thailand back in 2004 and finally one snap from Vietnam made in 2013.

Enjoy! (And please leave a comment.)
