Haiku 589 Joann Klontz haiku - crutches
Haiku by Joann Klonz of USA. Artwork by myself.
Another green leaves haiga. Joann's haiku does not have the season word, but I picked this season of green leaves for the haiga. It is the season even a person with leg ailment want to play and roll on fresh green grass, freeing from the binding of the crutches.
I have been checking out a blog run by a person who lives in Ishinomaki city（石巻）, one of the severely hit cities by the 3/11 disaster. This blog link shows recent photographs of the city. Though the photos are taken under sunny spring sun light, there is tone of melancholy in all. In a way, they possess a similar feel as this haiga today.
