WHAT’S A Shashin no uta?

“In a nutshell, to compose a Shashin no uta you 1) write a haiku, and 2) put together a series of images to illustrate your haiku.  There should be no written words in your images.  You may add your written haiku after the photoku if you desire. ”  Jen from Blog it or Lose it!

    • Thanks … it was going to be part of this week’s photoku, but couldn’t work it into the shiver and patterns … btw, tried to make a monster … but couldn’t download the thing … got an empty script image … alas … I’m afraid that the empty script is not only a W.P. problem.


      • Oh dear.

        What about this one for the monster?

        You don’t get to pick the pieces; it generates at random for you.

        Of course — there are WAY too many prompts out there, LOL!

        Sorry about the shiver/patterns thing btw ….. I thought it would be easy but Michelle Lunato had problems too.

        Do you have suggestions for next week? I’m all ears. Picking prompt words can be tougher than I thought. Maybe everyone would benefit from a different voice.


        • something seasonal like snow and sun 😉 just kidding but seasonal kigo might be easier to write and photoku for. Things like shivering are really hard to depict in a photograph (at least for me) and maybe you should always remind us, like we do on MLMM that one can submit their own idea leaving the prompt as a suggestion.
