Haiga182


The photograph and the haiku (or maybe a senryu) are by myself.

Very nice black and white photo and humorous haiku.

Thanks.Haiku, with its brevidy, is a good companion to the photograph. Photo-haiku is becoming big in Japan recently. But because most of haijin do not write haiku in English, their artworks are hardly seen by the foreigners. For the WHA haiga contest, very few Japanese send submission, while more and more submissions are coming from the world, the situation I wish to change.

There's a great line a Thomas Bernhard play where an old man says: the spectacles I used to read Voltaire with I now need to see to cut my toenails.

An ancient statue has no worries.

A big foot, a fine haiku. And I smile. Thank you.

Best wishes
