Carpe Diem Haiga Festival #1

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at the first episode of a new  special feature on Carpe
Diem Haiku Kai Special. This feature is an awesome one, because in this feature it's all about Haiga.
Haiga is a nice kind of art and poetry it's a photo, painting or other kind of image with a haiku, senryu, tanka or kyoka included. The picture and the poem are making eachother stronger or making eachother clearer.
I have created a few haiga in the past years and I liked doing it ... so I hope you all appreciate this new feature and I will (try to) publish an every week episode of Haiga Festival.

For this new feature the only task is to share a Haiga with us. Maybe you have a special memory going with it ... or maybe your haiga is just that beautiful to share. This feature will not have a given prompt ... it's just free ... feel free to share your haiga which you like.

I love to share a haiga which I made not that long ago, and maybe you can remember it, because I shared it on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and here it is:

This episode of Haiga Festival will stay open until January 16th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will (try to) post a new episode of this new feature that same date. NOW OPEN for your submissions!


  1. The sound of bamboo rustling... must be a gentle joyful sound! Lovely and delicate!

  2. enjoyed your haiga; linked in with an oldie of 2007

    much love...
