Haiga 767 -Water Haiku 4


Haiku and artwork by myself.
I wrote this haiku many years ago, at about when I started writing haiku and submitted them to Heron's Nest, which was for me a good place for learning and getting to know other haijins.
As for the haiga, my thought was at first to draw one branch of pine. I then did some subtracting in my mind and decided to focus on just one pine leaf. If I made the image like photograph with real background and all, it would be to literal, like illustrating the scene. So I gave an abstract quality to the haiga and created minimal art like image.
