A Month of Haiga – Haiga 13 – February 13, 2016


We had a lovely warm day, until about noon when everything turned kind of gloomy and dark.  It finally began to rain, but if you’ve been reading my posts you know that is a very good thing!

The photo I prepared today for my haiga was actually taken about a month ago.  I saw a plant in the sprouting stage and liked it so I did a macro.  I decided that it wasn’t really anything out of the ordinary and left it in my archives thinking to never look at it again, but this morning I decided to see if I could tweak it into something more interesting.  What do you think?  Today’s theme is:

late winter

which can also be early spring or pre-spring … it’s that moment when the cold recedes and life pokes out its nose to test the weather.  Sometimes, as in the case of fruit trees, that can be incautious, this is the time when suddenly a cold snap can wipe out all those hopeful blossoms in one hour!

HAiga 13

  4. that sounds to me like a very rich day.

    a long time ago i began to count my own personal spring as beginning on the first warm day of the new year. even if that is in January. well. i didnt live in Hawai’i at that time. so i was being hopeful and looking toward that season.

    i too have images i’ve worked but did not feel they worked quite right. every so often like you on this one, i go back and see that it’s a lot closer than i thought and i do a little more and find i like it. fun on that. fun on the image and haiku making your haiga. aloha.

    • Thanks for sharing your spring philosophy … I think that is a very fun idea indeed! It’s always better to let things set a little I think … one never knows what may happen in that passage of time.
