well, this is sort of an offshoot of the poetry contest thread in the forum, but a bit more specialized.

haiga is a form of haiku that combines artwork and painting with haiku-writing. So i thought it might be fun to try that here - either the same way as things are in the poetry contest thread, where one picture is posted and everybody writes poems about that; or everybody could post their own picture and the poems and pictures could be judged each week by the winner of the last contest - or it doesn't evn have to be a contest, if people would rather just write poems without having to worry about competition.

anyways, here's my first one. and the picture is:

Yay! Mirry. That's excellent. Personally, I'd prefer if it were more like the Google Image game, and one person posts a picture and then the next writes a haiku about it, and then that person posts a new picture. But it's your thread! :D I'll do whatever.

heya, Janine! Nice to see you around the Haiga thread. Is this the first time?

the object is to write your haiga about the previous posters image, (which I didn't paint! I wish, I think it's pretty cool)

you don't have to take the last line of the previous haiga. just post a new image for the next player.
