Create a haiga

1) Use any of the jpeg seed images below.

2) Write an original haiku or tanka to go with it.

3) Create a haiga embedding your poem in the image.

4) The image may be changed in any creative way, but something must be recognizable from it.

5) Name your haiga, be sure to label the subject line and your jpeg when submitting.

6) Do not include your name in the image.

7) Haiga must be posted for workshopping to be eligible.

8) Workshop as many haiga as you like, but you may submit only two for the kukai voting. 

9) All members are eligible to vote, whether you've submitted or not.

**Juxtaposition of image and haiku should be perceivable, and good haiga aesthetic should be observed.



Each artist may submit  two haiga for the kukai voting. 

Name your haiga, be sure to label the subject line and your jpeg.
  Example: [winter wind-yourname.jpg] [no spaces in the name]

If you submit more than one, name them:
      Example: winter wind-carolraisfeld1.jpg, umbrellas-carolraisfeld2.jpg

 Do not include your name in the image.

Send your submissions to both Carol and Linda, and
[not to the list]

 Submission Deadline: January 31, 2009 - midnight your local time.

Voting will commence the first week of February.

Voting instructions will be announced onlist. When voting is closed winners will be announced.

The winner will choose the image(s) for the next Kukai.

Have fun, and please continue to submit other images you wish to share...


PS: Any questions may be addressed on or offlist.  Linda and I will be available 24/7... ;-)
