Happy Haiga Day!

Last month I participated in a Spark postcard exchange.  Usually I write a short poem, digitally illustrate it, and print off a 4x6" copy to send as my postcard.  I impose upon myself a theme that I use to get me going.  In October my head was completely taken up by the presidential election, so, I didn't write poems.  Instead, I borrowed the words of another poet, Carl Sandburg, to illustrate using photos and illustrations in the public domain.  Sandburg's Good Morning, America (1928) collection contained a numbered list of 38 definitions of poetry.  Here are three of the postcards that I created using Sandburg's definitions #2, 14, and 21:

Time of Drought

Crow does
not doubt
one rain
drop will
mean two
rain drops,
will mean
three,
then four.
Nor does
he doubt
death will
find him
if that one
rain drop
does not
fall
at all.

waiting for fall to end

raking and bagging
raking and bagging

with patience new 
cooler winds will arrive
to blow the rest away
