A Haiga: A First Attempt

For those unfamiliar with the term, a haiga is a painting that incorporates the aesthetics of a haiku. Usually it is paired with a haiku. (If interested on more details, check out Wikipedia or even Modern Haiga online journal.)

Like all haiku, it is constantly evolving and now people will take photos or other artwork and pair them with a haiku.

Here is my first attempt at the form. The photo was taken by my daughter-in-law, Emily, of my son Mark and their son. I have added one of my haiku to the photo. Guitar Hero is a series of musical rhythm video games first produced in 2005 by RedOctane and Harmonix and distributed by Activision, by the way.


About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    • Thanks for all the postcards and mini-postcards, too. Truly cool. And of course, all the stamps that I have not seen in years.

      By the way, Atlas Shrugged is a standalone novel so there isn’t any reason to not read it whenever you want; there is no first novel although she does have others (We the Living (her first novel), Anthem, The Fountainhead and a play, Night of January 12th). She also has Ideal (play and novel) that was published posthumously (like 30+ years after she died) as well as some nonfiction titles (mostly philosophy).
