Collaborations: Photo Haiga
by Susan Constable and Llaesa North

Susan’s haiku, haibun, haiga, and tanka have been published in numerous journals and anthologies since 2006. As the tanka editor for the online journal, A Hundred Gourds, this five-line form has become her passion, but the return to haiga may, once again, prove addictive. Susan is thoroughly enjoying this collaborative venture, and her muse simply can’t resist responding to Llaesa’s photographs.

Llaesa is very honoured to be collaborating with Susan in this endeavor. As you'll gather from her website, photography has been a part of Llaesa’s life for many years. Her primary interest has been finding the essential beauty in simple, everyday moments in her natural surroundings. She is new to haiga, but using her images to reflect and even augment Susan’s beautiful poems has been delightfully challenging.
