Prompt e30doh 2016-003 (Dec. 1, 2016):
Northern Hemisphere: first snow
Southern Hemisphere:  last snow

i hope you will consider being currently (in the moment) engaged and active in the creative process rather than browsing past images and past haiku. in other words, create your haiku and even take photos or paint/draw on the spot or as soon as possible after your haiku moment.

remember the image can be something other than the subject of the haiku. in fact i think often in the best haiga the image does more than illustrate the haiku and the haiku is more than a description of the image. this is not an absolute. there are many good haiga that partially illustrate or describe. i’m just encouraging us to explore this third option. see if you can connect the two, haiku and image, yet avoid illustrating the haiku, or describing the image.

of course you are under no obligation to do any of this or even use the prompt. simply create your own haiga—image and haiku (or if you cannot create an image use a free source image so that you do not infringe on copyrights). then connect your haiga post to the link box for 2016-003-e30doh:

i will add my haiga to the link box as well for e30doh at some point (hopefully) before the next prompt comes out. i hope to create a prompt every other week or so. however the pattern will become what ever the pattern will be.

as always ask if something is not clear. watch and respond to what others do. and have fun.

p.s.
i do not have a Twitter or Instagram account. you are welcome to link up here appropriately, however i may not be able to visit you.

welcome to the 2nd e30doh prompt:

2016-002-e30doh [Nov. 2016]   
Northern Hemisphere: dark days
Southern Hemisphere:  light days

because this is time extended (most likely a couple of weeks) as well as Extended 30doh, for creating i hope you will consider being currently (in the moment) engaged and active in the creative process rather than browsing past images and past haiku. in other words, create your haiku and even take photos or paint/draw on the spot or as soon as possible after the haiku moment.

(this is a slightly different haiga than i had intended for this post response. the one i intended to use had another purpose to it as well as the haiga response and i do not want to use it until i have the purpose cleared for use.)

e30doh 2016-001 The First Bird Sound [the first e30doh prompt and information too]

2016-unknnown-thought-1-sml-6x

why i thought
about loneliness
unknown

welcome to the first e30doh prompt, which is the first bird sound. . . .

my thinking is that Extended 30 Days of Haiga (e30doh) will be slightly different than the usual 30 Days of Haiga (30doh) in September of each year because we will have a week or two to create rather than the usual 24 hours of 30doh.

so the prompts may be a little different. like this one:

2016-001-e30doh [for Nov. 2016]   
Northern Hemisphere: the next bird sound you hear
Southern Hemisphere:  the next bird sound you hear

because this is time extended as well as Extended 30doh, for creating, i hope you will consider being more engaged and active in the creation rather than browsing past images and past haiku. in other words, listen, and at the first bird sound you notice, create your haiku and even take photos on the spot or as soon as possible after that point.

remember the image can be something other than a bird. in fact i think often in the best haiga the image does more than illustrate the haiku. and the haiku is more than a description of the image. this is not an absolute. there are many good haiga that partially illustrate or describe. i’m just encouraging you to explore this third way. see if you can connect the two, haiku and image, yet avoid illustrating the haiku, or describing the image.

of course you are still under no obligation to do any of this or even use the prompt. simply do your own work (or if you cannot create an image use a free source image so that you do not infringe on copyrights). then connect your haiga post up in the link box for 2016-001-e30doh:


i will add my haiga to the link box as well for e30doh at some point (hopefully) before the next prompt comes out. i hope to create a prompt every other week at this point. however the pattern will become what ever the pattern will be.
