Haiga 339

Haiku by Alenka Zorman, Slovenia. Alenka wrote a series of haiku by the sea. I received the batch and was thinking how I should go about visualizing them. I could have made haiga for each haiku separately, but I tried something experimental. I made a selection of haiku from the batch and made one artwork that fits the mood of the selected haiku.

I sent the haiga to Alenka san on May 25, which Alenka san later informed me was a Day of Youth, a festive day celebrated every year in Slovenia.

My haiga books are available here:
Haiga eBook "wind", "water" and "light"
Also available at Hamburge Haiku Verlag

A great way to display haiku in a haiga. Very original.

Kuni san,

Warmest thanks! You've made two friends happy :).

Sorry for being so late. For one day I am back home (from the seaside), leaving for Croatia again, in a few hours.

All my best,
