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.
This is my response to the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Black and White for Monday October 20, 2014, found on the Lens and Pens by Sally blog.
Below are the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge themes for each Monday of the month:
1st Monday: Nature
2nd Monday: Macro
3rd Monday: Black and White
4th Monday: Challenger’s Choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, or Travel).
5th Monday: Editing and Processing with Various Apps Using Themes from the Fourth Week.

A reminder for those interested in Haiku and Related forms I encourage you to look into Chrissi L. Villa’s new Frameless Sky – The First Haiga and Tanka Video Journal which is currently accepting submissions and will do so through October. You can discover more about Chrissi through her blog, Blossom Rain. I have known Chrissi online for several years having met through our common interest in Haiku.
