A Month of Haiga – February 1, 2016

Hello!  Today I begin my month-long personal challenge of creating and publishing a haiga a day.  The theme I’ve chosen for today is:


Water is a vast subject. In Far Eastern cultures, water is the very element of life. It’s colour is black or dark blue, it’s season is winter, it’s emotion is fear – in the five element acupuncture theory, water is born from metal and gives birth to wood – it is controlled by earth and controls fire. Actually there are so many symbols and thoughts about the elements that whole libraries have been written. So today I’m just going to look at the one aspect of water – its life-giving aspect. Our planet is made up of 70% water – as indeed are most of the planets living organisms, which is a fact the Chinese likely knew when they were learning how to cure themselves back in the lost millennium of the history. I’ve chosen to write about the element of life – but the subject is open to any aspect of water … or about anything that inspires your muse!
