Poetry Friday--Another Haiga

Two Fridays ago I shared a winter haiga (an illustrated haiku). I had such fun creating it, I decided to do another!

I used a photo that I took at Kindling Words during one of our get-to-know-you group activities. The canvas was still fresh when I took the photo below:

I cropped out most of the photo for the haiga!

Here's the group painting nearing completion:

We filled every inch of canvas with color! Our prompt word was "fire."

See what everyone else has to share today by visiting the Poetry Friday Round-Up hosted at Great Kid Books.


  1. This is wonderful. We are not having this kind of winter. I sort of miss it.

  2. I'm so glad the "she" of the haiku decided not to wait for spring! I just urged Laura Salas at her blog to "steal pleasure" right now, why wait for summer?

    Beautiful group painting! This is the time of year I just feel myself drawn to anything red.

  3. I like how you cropped that early moment in the painting's life to use with your haiku!
