Traditional Haiga

From the beginning, Haigaonline's signature feature has been the Traditional Haiga section. Here we feature multimedia haiga by our resident staff. Mary E. Rodning paints the image; Hiromi Inoue translates the haiku into Japanese and arranges the calligraphy; Seiso (Paul Cooper) arranges for music, and finally Jasminka Nadaškić Đorđević puts on the finishing touches by marrying calligraphy to image. This issue we're honored to welcome the return of Seiso's friend Aaron Shragge, who has given us a lovely shakuhachi setting for the haiga.

This time we've chosen a tanka to poem
Mary's painting of lotus and dragonflies.
Barbara Kaufmann is our honored author.
