Haiku ~ Weathergrams

Moving Forward

A little over a year ago (Nov. 2013) Jessica Tremblay posted 8 clever ways to display your haiku on her Old Pond Comics blog. I liked the weathergram idea. It took me a while to figure out how and where I could attempt some weathergrams.

Last October (2014) Jessica again posted more Weathergrams from Seabeck Haiku Gateway 2014, refreshing my weathergram interest.

Now I’ve followed up with my own weathergrams. Earlier this month (the first week of January 2015) I was able to do this on Goose Pond (near Chatham on Cape Cod).

My resources were mostly what I had on hand and carried from Hawai’i; strips I cut from a 25 year old roll of white “butcher” paper and garden twine. Today this Goose Pond area is under snow (the January blizzard of 2015). The photos are of course pre-blizzard. All counted eventually there were twelve weathergrams on this small oak tree above Goose Pond.

This is the area where Henry David Thoreau spent time writing.

Some days were quite breezy.

All the days were chilly—mostly just above and below freezing.

At that time I was hoping for a little snow.

Not even a snowflake fell while I was there.

Still, every day was spectacular.


Thank you Jessica.

My International Postcard Week postcard for 2014. Yes, I missed the week (October 5-11, 2014). However, I like doing the postcard just the same and I intend to make it available on my 19 Planets CafePress shop.

Thank you to Brenda Perez for the gentle reminder and encouragement to be more timely next year.

Brenda runs two blogs (that I know of) around postcards: 9teen87’s Postcards where a variety of postcards are shown and International Postcard Week with more information and how to participate in International Postcard Week can be found.

Haiga is one of the many Haiku and Related Forms in the field of poetry.

Haiga as I see it is image which includes haiku as part of the image—image and haiku as one work.
