A Haiga…traditionally in Japan a Haiga is usually a Haiku with a painting (Hai for Haiku and ga for painting) of course here we’ve combined a beautiful photograph with a Tanka…so maybe we should call it a Tanga…I think not 😉
A Tanka is similar to a Haiku, but it has two extra lines of 7 syllables each, it dates back to 1200 years ago and usually talks about nature, but also strong emotions, and very often uses metaphors.
