The Haiku Challenge, day 3


Everything can be the source for inspiration, such as a wonderful poem, a painting or a song. But also a wonderful photograph. For this day of The Haiku Challenge the source of inspiration is a wonderful photo by Anand.



I wonder if I can write a haiku on this photo and make it a 'photo-haiga'.

This was a tough one. I came up with the following haiku:

strong hands praying
on the corner of the street -
God be with you

This one feels good it has a positive energy according to the photo.


I have made several 'photo-haiga' in the past years, one of them I love to publish here. This one I made with the Benidorm (Spain) Cross as inspiration.


See you again next day ... for a new haiku for the Haiku Challenge 2012.

I LIKE it ... I was unfamiliar with the term "photo haiga" ... I believe it is one of the prompts a little further along in our journey ... thank you for directing my attention to a new term ...

Until I read your words, I never thought of these hands as praying...but why not? :)
