Inspirational Haiga

A haiga is a haiku that’s couple with a picture.  In my understanding of Japanese haiga, the pictures are usually drawn in a very specific way.  But modern day western haiga have taken on a slightly different form.

I used these wonderful photos in the past, but tonight I decided to write (hopefully) more inspiring haiku/senryu to go on them.

Every sunrise
brings hope of a new day.
Savor the moment.

Focused intention:
Weaving a web of success,
starting with one strand.

Hard work and vision
will overcome barriers
thought unbreakable.
