Rabbit Haiga


thunderstorm -
the sweet smell between
my rabbit's ears

I couldn't resist the Arty Girlz Challenge this week - to illustrate a poem or quote. So here is a haiga, in memory of Anya. I'm making a lot of cards this size at the moment, to give out to people who express interest in my blog or poetry. The cards are all made from reused card. You can see another one (made from a reused train ticket) here. You can also see a haiga about my favourite bird, the swift, here.

I love both the rabbit and the haiku, Juliet. So simple looking, yet so profound. Thank you for sharing.

I like the way you abstracted her shapes. Ah ,yes, between the ears is a lovely place for a nose.

This is nice! Good poem and a perfect drawing for it. Haiku drawings should be simple like this. I've always been partial to Issa's illustrations for his haiku.

I've never smelled between a rabbit's ears or had a rabbit to call my own, but the jux here is excellent.
