Haiga 619 Kristy Karkow haiku - fire

Haiku by Kristy Karkow (USA). Artwork by myself.
Is it possible to visualize sound? I think it can be done.

In this haiga, I used bold simple shapes, strong brush strokes, vibrant complementary colors of green and red, strong contrast of tones, and wild-looking font. I think these visual elements contribute to convey not only the kind of sounds but also a sense of fear of the wildfire.

I just hope that this is not self-complacency.

Very well done!

And also as well as noise, one can illustrate silence. The silence for example in the elements of air and water.
