One Month of Haiga – Haiga 25, February 25, 2016


There’s something particularly beautiful about swans.  If you’ve ever had much to do with swans,  you’ll know that they are not really friendly birds, especially in the breeding season.  I remember a scene where a Japanese tourist was trying to photograph a family of swans, the male hissed him soundly and when he refused to back off charged the man.  Swans are also a symbol of monogamy.  When a swan loses its mate, they often refuse to mate again with a substitute (though this is not always true, see the link below)  so a lone swan is a sad sight to see, except in the winter when the young are full-grown and off on their own.  At this point swans often take some alone time unlike what happens once the brooding urge comes upon them again.   I think this  is very sensible of the swans but most people don’t realize this and think sad thoughts of separation 😉 .

Today’s theme isn’t about swans though,  the swan info  and all the meanings we attach to the birds came to mind as I looked at the photo I’ve chosen for today.  However not everyone has a handy swan about so today’s theme is:


Your clouds might be the bright fluffy kind, that remind you of animals, or dark brooding kind like just before a storm.  There are oodles of things to do with clouds .. and of course they’re not assigned to just one season.  Here’s my haiga:
