. . . and an “artsy” 2008 haiga calendar, too

Filed under: Haiga or Haibun,Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 11:39 am

As often happens around here, the f/k/a Gang ganged up on me last night, not long after I posted our message gratefully sharing the f/k/a Haiga Memories Calendar with our readers. My opinionated alter egos started complaining that I was ignoring all the f/k/a fans who might eschew cute baby pictures and the whole nostalgia shtick, and who expected something a bit more artistic from this weblog and its Editor — especially when it comes to the haiga genre. As usual, they had a point.

I’ve therefore spent the morning putting together a more “artsy” holiday gift calendar, and am happy to announce the online availability (for free, of course) of the Giacalone Haiga Calendar 2008.© Like the Haiga Memories edition, it’s a 12-month calendar, created as a printable Word document (14 pages, including the covers). The 13 included haiga each combine a full-color photograph taken by my brother Arthur Giacalone (the talented solo practitioner from East Aurora, NY) with a haiku or senryu by your Host [a/k/a dagosan]. Most of them have been published, or are pending, at the online journals Simply Haiku or HaigaOnline.

No matter which haiga calendar is your “cup of tea,” we all hope you’ll
enjoy them, with our thanks and best wishes for a joyous, prosperous,
creative New Year.

round and round with you
on thin ice
