This poem woke me up and wouldn’t leave me alone. The rhythm feels slightly off towards the last line but it insists it’s following the pattern of lilting and drifting, rhyming within to produce sound and feeling.
Since so many poets are inspired by photos, drawings, paintings, or other images when they compose their poetry, I wanted to add the “Haiga,” a dramatic poetic form to my weekly syllabic poetry challenge starting the first week of February 2019. So, for the new challenge posted on 2/5/19, this will be another acceptable form for our syllabic challenge.
Haiga is sometimes called observational poetry because it contains an image with either a haiku or senryu written on it or near it.
This one form combines three artforms: imagery (photographs or original art), poetry, and calligraphy.
Whoop! It has been 5 years since I first took the plunge and started my blog!
I could wax and wane over my trials and tribulations, exciting moments and not-so-great posts, but there’s no point when you’ve there, on the journey.
Instead, I will say, help yourself to a glass of champagne and let’s raise a toast to all the bloggers I have met along the way, the wonderful readers who have made my day and of course, the inspirational posts I’ve had the fortune to share.
Thank you, one and all, for being a part of this journey.
