Winter Snow haiku senryu

strike of a new year
radiant white and unformed
the future unfolds

blank white page
waiting for our mark
let’s explore

This was written for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge.  This week the form was poet’s choice, but we were also supposed to choose a color.  I chose white and two haiku-like poems (a haiku and a senryu) of form 5-7-5 and 3-5-3 (verified at sodacoffee.com/syllables).  I am also going to join Rebecca today.  I chose my own photo.  I’m not 100% sure if this really counts as a haiga, but hopefully it will work :)

    I really like the way these two pieces compliment each other … almost a statement and question of sorts … speaks of quiet contemplation and the desire to begin afresh …. and what lovely images Trent ….. truly a gift chanced upon …. (I’ve read the other posts too … how delightful to be able to walk into such a situation and be witness!)

      Thanks, Colleen. OK, I get it. I have done that before, but not here – maybe I will change it. Rebecca said “use this picture or one of your own to make a haiga” without really explaining what it was, so… I will go back and change it to say haiku and senryu :)

          lol, OK. Wikipedia says haiga is the image itself, a painting that is supposed to portray the idea esthetics of a haiku. Anyway, it is all good. I have made Haifa in the past, but it has been a while.
