Haiga 598 Alexis Rotella haiku - mosque

Haiku by Alexis Rotella. Artwork by myself.

Alexis and I were tweeting yesterday, and there was something about mosque. I then remembered a haiga I made some years ago for her mosque haiku. Alexis san is known for her witty senryu, but she also writes quite poetic haiku, and this is one of them.

I always like the contrast of blue and white. In the beginning that was what I was going to do about the haiga. But I noticed the word "softening". To include it visually in the haiga took a little thinking, and here is my solution.

Rainy days are about to be over here in Japan. Soon we will be able to enjoy blue sky this this.
Today, I go to Osaka again to discuss the up-coming haiga exhibition. In a way, this event is like a blue sky to me.
