Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.

Haiga ~ Jelly Fish

Writing Haiga is much like conveying your idea of what is in the picture on an "ink blotter" when the Dr. says, "What do you see!" It is a different image to each person. This is my interpretation of what I saw when I was looking at this jelly fish floating in the tank at the Atlanta Aquarium.

Very nice Akela, oh there are many rules, and once a person learns them, then they basically do anything they want, or so it seems. But mostly it is to convey one image, in the present, (an instant in time), with the least necessary words to accurately show the other person what you are seeing. Sounds simple, but actually it is quite difficult. Because everyone sees something different. So to convey your image takes some doing.

Without the pictures it is called Haiku, with pictures it is Haiga....but origianl Haiga were not photo's, rather drawings......
