COMING UP IN HAIGAONLINE . . .

HAIKU THIS HAIGA FOR OUR JUNE 2012 ISSUE

In the Traditional Haiga section we've just published another painting by resident artist Mary Rodning. The deadline for submissions to poem it is 28 February 2012. Include "Haiku this Haiga June 2012" in your subject line and email it to me, Linda, at the following address:

paplinda@yahoo.com

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 2012 issue.

THE HAIGA CHALLENGE FOR OUR JUNE 2012 ISSUE:
SUMMER ACTIVITIES AND ROUTINES!

How do you spend your summer? I'm a teacher and by the time this issue comes out I'll be recuperating from the school year, perhaps catching up on some long-delayed writing or art projects. My students may be going to the beach or to camp, taking a class or playing a sport in a summer league, traveling with their families. The self-employed may not have vacation at all, although if farmers their summer routines will still be different than spring, fall or winter.

Over the past few years we've tended to pick the season references for our themes from nature, but this time we thought we'd look to those season references that are grouped under the headings of "humanity ", "human affairs", "daily life"or "observances". Write from our own experience, but if you' like to consult a season word list, the following English language saijikis that are available online may prove helpful:

The deadline for submissions is 31 March 2012. Include "Haigaonline--Summer Activities Challenge" in your subject line and mail to me, Linda, at the following address:
