Yesterday I posted a photo and haiku in my primary blog, Ichigo Ichie, to represent the concept of Flow psychology. Here, I thought I would make a bit of a change to the photo. For the first time, I am trying haiga. I understand that traditional Japanese haiga typically combined brush artwork with a haiku in calligraphy, using the same brush and ink. Some of the modern forms of haiga combine digital art with haiku as one image. So, that is the kind of haiga I am attempting here – digital art haiku, inspired by the 19 Planets Art Blog call. It was not as simple as it may appear. My first attempt took a little time to determine the placement of the words, the font and font size. I have an appreciation for people who can combine the art and the words to create an aesthetically pleasing image.
Flow with the river
Float on the breeze, Bathe in bliss
Notice nothing else
