Haiga ~ Image with Haiku as One Work 

The prompt for today is: Trading and/or Sewing Machine(s) (Sept. 10)

This haiga combines work and material from my Postal Art days. The ink drawing is in a sketchbook. It was an idea for a postcard swap. The stamp and partial stamp with cancellation marks is from an envelope scent to me by a friend in Argentina which contained Postal Art.

Some how I’ve gotten further and further behind with my own prompts for 30 Days of Haiga to the point where I’m now a day behind. I will try to remedy that soon. To this point I’ve been doing two haiga works per day although one of them has been for the Carpe Diem seasonal word (kigo) prompts

Each 30 Days of Haiga post has a new Mister Linky button for that day. To connect your haiga post to the prompt for today, click on the Mister Linky button below and add your post URL link (which is different from your blog URL link) as indicated.



Leave a note in the comment section when you add your haiga post URL link and I will try to come visit your haiga (this may take a few days—especially toward the end of the month). Currently I’m behind on comments and visits. I hope to remedy this in the coming days. 

Anyone can visit haiga created by others. Click on the Mister Linky button and then the post you’d like to visit.
