I savor you

Watch my emotions unfold

How to Create a Haiga

Compose a haiku or senryu. You don’t have to be strict with the syllables.

Find a photo that matches the theme of the haiku/senryu.

Open the photo in image manipulation programs such as Photoshop, GIMP or any Online Photo Editor.

Choose the text tool and write the haiku/senryu, or copy-paste text.

If you have photo editing skills, you can blend multiple photos and add strokes to the text.

Save the photo. Your Haiga is ready to be published anywhere you want.

Oh, how very lovely, Vinaya. I missed this one some how, but arrived here through Rosemary's hub where she linked this beautiful piece here on Haigu. Really love your Mother Haigu. Wow! I do want to try this photo manipulation to try a Haigu.

Voted up ++++ and sharing

Blessings, Faith Reaper

Vinaya my friend, I am not much into these forms of beauty, however amazing as they are, I am stirred by them, especially the one on PAIN something I associated with:-) especially having been married twice. Well done my poet.

Hi Vinaya,

This is a jewel to be sure. Only a brother could empathize with his sister's true emotions. I was exquisite and I loved it.

Vinaya,

I enjoyed reading your micropoetry. I would consider your haiga to having utilized senryu rather than haiku, however. Haiku is traditionally involved with nature. Senryu is concerned with emotions.

When I create haiga, my photograph frequently comes before my micropoetry. I take a photo, and the words of a haiku or senryu float into my head.

Well written Vinaya. I'm a mother and have known the pain of romantic and family love and you have captured the essence of the sacrifices made by us all.
