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:
