our haiga calendars for June 2008

Filed under: Haiga or Haibun,Haiku or Senryu,q.s. quickies — David Giacalone @ 1:00 pm

June is almost here, and the procrastinating f/k/a Gang has taken time off from preparing a serious posting to help you get organized (and inspired) for the coming month. Below are sample calendar pages from both of our 2008 haiga calendars — the artsy Giacalone Bros. Haiga Calendar 2008 and the nostalgic fka Haiga Memories Calendar 2008. (See our prior post from last December for descriptions and links. Haiga are pictures combined with a subtly-linked haiku or similar poem).

Just click on the sample calendar pages below to go to a printable full-size version. A link is also provided to a larger version of each of the original haiga used for the calendar.

she glares at me
for squinting

p.s. Yes, that is Your Editor on his first birthday in the above photograph, which was apparently taken before our county had a Child Protective Services unit.
