And Chèvrefueille gave really a lot of examples for explanation:
Okay … back to our episode of today. Today I have another nice prompt for you to create a haiga with. Today that’s bird feathers. To inspire you a bit I will give the examples by Jane Reichhold for this prompt from her modern Saijiki “A Dictionary of Haiku”.

I received a fantastic new toy for Christmas … an electronic drawing pad with stylus by Trust!
These are my first drawing experiments:
And here’s my drawing number one … a kitty(I feel like the pilot in the “Little Prince”!) it was done using “Paint” … I had a few problems because the stylus was super sensitive and as soon as I touched the board with the stylus off it went … I have to learn to adjust it for this program.
This is my drawing number two … an etegami, made with “Artweaver” the program that comes with the stylus/drawing pad. The stylus worked was better with this and it has a lovely calligraphy brush … which I have to learn how to use for smaller strokes. I didn’t like how “Artweaver” doesn’t allow me to write my initials wherever I like and did that with “Picasa 3”:

Here are two photographs of dawn this morning. I would have said, because I’d read the word used in a story in reference to the first light of dawn, that the day was gloaming … but just to be sure, I looked it up. Gloaming is dusk! Darn!
This morning chatting with Jan about a lovely tanka (Evening Falls – Tanka) she’d been inspired to create for Bastet’s Pixelventures, I oooed and awwed when I saw one of her photos which had been elaborated with a kaleidoscope filter. It was created with an on-line editor: Pixlr.com.
I just had to try it! So I took this photo (which I’ll show you “raw” with only my signature:
