"Snow Goose": a graphic renku
by Jim Swift and Linda Papanicolaou

In 2011, Jim and I wrote "Snow Goose" as a graphic renga in shisan format in 2011. Jim experimented with various ways of organizing it as a slideshow presentation, eventually settling on a Proshow Flash slide show that we published in the 2011 Notes from the Gean

In 2012, preparing to give a presentation on his experiments with haiga slideshows at the annual Seabeck Haiku Getaway, Jim returned to "Snow Goose", adding a shakuhachi sound track by Carl Abbott and upgrading it to an mp4 file that may be viewed on most systems without specialized software. It's now on Vimeo and I'm delighted to be able to announce its republication here at Haigaonline.
