Visual Poetry


This section was opened in October, 2003, and it continues to grow.  Most  images on these pages are haiga. A few will simply be graphics.  Guest works are included on this first page. 

Haiga is the name for traditional Japanese art forms composed of brush painting and calligraphy of haiku poetry. Modern Haiga is also done on graphics, paintings or photographs.  Click on the thumbnail to enlarge. All images are copyrighted.

Tankart is in a similar form as a haiga, but with a tanka as text rather than haiku. 

Do not copy the images. If you have special interest in an image  contact me. If the artist has a website , contact information will be there. My email address is on my home page. Page three is for non-haiga graphics and photographs.
