Goodnight Winter

The more I read different blogs the more I learn about writing (and many other things) better. I also learn new techniques and styles, ways and means of doing things; most prominently I have learned a ton about restoring old pipes, a hobby I dearly enjoy. But more recently I’m learning more about different and unique styles of writing, focusing today on  haiga – haiku with/on photos. 

This is my third attempt at haiga  and the first that I think I’ve actually done right! I’ve used the Carpe Diem Haiku prompt for all three of them, this one included, but just realized the words are supposed to be on the photo, not just near it! Oh well, at least I’m learning!

This challenge really challened me, too. It is about spring equinox; please click the link to read all about it, as there’s quite an intersection story that goes with the challenge. 


Goodnight cold and grey
This equinox spells your end
Spring is here today

If you read my posts you probably know I usually get an idea, work it right up and “bam”, that’s what I have: simple. Occasionally it doesn’t go that way and this was on of those occasions. I knew kind of what I wanted to say but exactly which photo I wanted to say it with. 


  1. Welcome at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Greg … what a wonderful haiku you have shared here and with that gorgeous photo you’ve turned it into a marvelous haiga. Thank you for visiting … hope to see you again at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai (CDHK).
    By the way … I am your host at CDHK.
