Poetry Friday: A Haiga by Diane Mayr


Last Wednesday, Diane Mayr and I discussed haiku. Today, Diane is sharing a haiga, illustrated haiku. Diane is using a picture from the Library of Congress collection of Japanese prints created before 1915.


Plus today is the day the CYBILS are announced. You can find full results HERE.

Hearty congratulations to Amy Ludwig VanDerwater for Forest Has a Song: Poems.
And thank you to a fabulous judging committee.
