    Default Haiga: An Inspirational Art Form Combining Haiku and Image

    I am studying this art form for a book I am submitting to the Morikami Museum...feeling a bit uninspired lately, and reading thoughts of those with lack of material of late as well, I am starting this thread to eventually toss my photos and verse in this form to the forum for comments and constructive criticism. In the interim, i thought it would be a cool way to combine an affinity for images in any form and verse, either traditional haiku or contemporary variations, and share your work!

    Haiga: A Definition

    Traditional Japanese haiga involved brush art work coupled with a haiku poem done in brush calligraphy. Like the haiku poem, the focus of haiga is in simplicity of expression.

    Digital art-haiku is one form of modern haiga. Other forms include photo-haiku [haiku attached to a photographic image] and all modern forms of art coupled with haiku. Of course, traditional haiga is still practiced.

    Just as the haiku form often contains a juxtaposition between two of its lines and a third line, so does or can modern haiga contain a juxtaposition between the haiku itself and the digital art work.In short, the art work does not necessarily directly represent the images presented in the haiku.

    haiku - Lorin Ford
    painting - Mary Rodning
    translation - Hiromi Inoue
    calligraphy - Shisen
    haiga - Jasminka
    bamboo flute - Choshi


    this contemporary piece is just cool (move your mouse over image)

    cloaked, umbrella-ed, yet
    i scramble a snail's boot-crush
    toward the sound puddles.

    Default attempt number three

    pretty little maids
    row of corn determining
    how stalks clothe the barn .






    when we share space, breath
    a bookstore welcomes with pews
    sifting faith through sheaves.

    Default test shot

    a clack of water to rock
    we are merely that.
