Haiga 762 -Toy Haiku 15

Haiku by Rita Odeh (Israel). Artwork by myself.
Rita-san sent me a batch of haiku about children. Among them, I found this haiku. It is about stone, like the previous post 761. The haiku seems to have some interesting layers of meaning other than kid having fun throwing stones.
As for the haiga, I considered the the excitements of children playing a game. I took out crayon for I thought that was a suitable medium to express the mood, and did the color drawing on white paper. I drew the stones in various colors to make the drawing look colorful. I then scan the drawing and added the background.
I am thinking what the next theme of haiga will be. I have got some suggestions from the blog visitors. I thank for that. This time, I would like to pick a pretty broad theme, "water". I have put together an ebook of water theme haiga before. I will be able to expand the collection this time. This theme includes from ocean to a cup of tea.

Kuni san, this is a very beautiful haiga.It is interesting how you chose to draw colorful stones. From the first glance, I had the feeling that it is a Christmas tree which produces a geat feeling of joy. Thank you for the lovely effort.

Kuni san,

My last 3 or 4 haiku have been about water - albeit frozen water - and accompanied by my own photos - you could take them and illustrate them differently if you like.

Does the word "sosusho" exist in Japanese? It's the word verification code for this comment. That's why I ask.

Thank you for the comments.

"sosusho" does not mean anything in Japanese. At least nothing comes to my head.
