COMING UP IN HAIGAONLINE . . .

HAIKU THIS HAIGA FOR OUR JUNE 2011 ISSUE

In the Traditional Haiga section we've just published another painting by resident artist Mary Rodning. Send us poem for it by 28 February 2011. Address your email to the editor, paplinda@yahoo.com, and include 'haiku this haiga' in your subject heading. If your poem is chosen, it will be translated into Japanese by Hiromi Inoue and rendered in calligraphy by Shisen. Jasminka will make the haiga, and Choshi will compose bamboo flute music to accompany it. The completed haiga will be featured in our June 2011 issue.

HAIGA CHALLENGE FOR OUR JUNE 2011 ISSUE:
FLOWERS!

Perhaps because outside it's cold and preparing to snow as I write this, I'm thinking that it would be delightful to have a June issue full of flowers!

Haiga for this challenge may be any season, not just what's current for you now. Senryu are okay too, as well as tanka and sijo, which are, after all, poetry of song. The image may be in your choice of techniques: scanned original art, digital art, photography, etc. Flowers may figure in the text and/or the image, but it's worth remembering that the art of haiga depends on an open, multilayered relationship between the parts.

The deadline for submissions is 30 April, 2011. Include "Haigaonline--Flower Challenge" in your subject line and mail to me, Linda, at the following address:

paplinda@yahoo.com
