So cool! OMG, do you think with our ability to post images now that we'll see a change in the type of poems we write? In other words, more visual, less cerebral?

I love it - haiku does so lend itself to a poem/photo combination, and this is perfect!

There is a Japanese form called Haiga that I've always liked. It has a haiku-like poem with a photo or drawing/painting. I hope something inspires me to write this year whether it's visual or cerebral!

Thank you. I always hang my prayer flags where I can see them from the window and watch them through all seasons and they have inspired a few poems.
