My response for Prompt #018. [for Sept. 18] News Paper(s) or Bicycle(s)

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 (see a more detailed version of how I see haiga below).

Welcome to 30 Days of Haiga ~ September 2014

 

Today is Prompt #019. [for Sept. 19] Worm(s) or Star(s)

Please add the URL for your response to Prompt #019 by clicking on the link box below and adding your information:

Click to see what others are doing and have fun.

The Prompts for the next three days follow. Simply add your response to the link box that will be provided on the appropriate day. Your haiga does not have to make use of the provided prompt. The prompts are here as an option. Some prompts are traditional kigo words or phrases—some are not:

  • #020. [for Sept. 20] Spice(s) or School(s)
  • #021. [for Sept. 21] Dove(s) or Use the early autumn/spring kigo word “lantern” [usually as in a garden, made of stone, cement or bronze] (Northern Hemisphere); “red plum blossoms” (Southern Hemisphere)
  • #022. [for Sept. 22] Band-Aid(s) or Elephant(s) or Ice Cream Cone(s)

I suspect we all approach haiga in our own ways. Currently this is how I see haiga:

Both the image and the haiku of haiga should be able to stand alone, independent of each other, each remaining a solid work. Together as haiga, along with a visual balance, they should each offer something new or different to the other—a greater understanding or an alternative perspective possibly. In haiga the image should be more than a simple illustration of the haiku and the haiku should do more than simply describe the visual that is apparent in the image. There should however be a connection between the two that is enhanced by their relationship together in the work. This is the ideal I attempt in my haiga. Sometimes I succeed in these things. Sometimes I do not.

The bottom line is of course to have fun creating haiga and to learn about the ways others create haiga too.  Aloha—Rick

#018-30doh. Apple Crunch ~ #017 For 30 Days of Haiga ~ September 2014 with Haibun

really. what I wanted to write. is about this old crabapple tree. one from my memory. even then it seemed like it must have been a thousand years old. maybe even planted in civil war days. that 7-9 year old mind of mine working hard to understand time and age and history and chronology. 

out the back door. across and down plank wood porch steps. onto the path. toward the small barn. across two fences. and a pasture and a half. up the hillside. the grass still wet with dew. there. coated in cluster dots of red. my breath still visible. the gnarled tree. 

the previous afternoon one of the neighborhood kids had given me one. it was tart. sour sour tart. and I liked it. he told me where he’d gotten it. that next morning before anyone else was up. with frost in the shadows. I set off to explore on my own. 

reaching into the tree. taking off my tee shirt. I gathered up the arms and waist. and filled it with crabapples. hoarding the prize all day till I went home. then showing mom what I’d brought her. biting into one and grinning.

I turn the TV off remembering. step outside. apple in hand. sit in the back yard. under the avocado tree. and crunch down on the prize of autumn. an apple.

the crunch
of autumn sound bites
I turn off the TV

My response for Prompt #017. [for Sept. 17] Apple(s) (Northern Hemisphere); “cherry blossoms” (Southern Hemisphere)

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 (see a more detailed version of how I see haiga below).

Haibun as I see it is prose or poetry (other than haiku) plus one or more haiku.

My response for Prompt #015. [for Sept. 15] Hat(s)

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 (see a more detailed version of how I see haiga below).

As an added note; traditionally humor (subtle or slap-stick) was often explored and appreciated in haiku. Currently I do not see it so often. When it occurs I’d like to think it is still appreciated.

Also, congratulations to readers and creators and thank you as well. With prompt #15 we have passed the midway point in September. Whether you have contributed once or twice or daily—or you are a reader, I appreciate the company. When it looks like fun I hope anyone interested will contribute and participate on the remaining days. I know I am behind in seeing what has been collected for the past week or so. I will catch up. . . . or at least I will try. as always, have fun. aloha—Rick
