our August 2008 haiga calendars

Filed under: Haiga or Haibun,Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 8:46 am

July rains and wanes, and it’s time to remind you that we’ve created two haiga calendar pages for August 2008 for your use and enjoyment. Below are sample-sized calendar pages for August from both of our free 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 of the free 12-month calendars. (FYI: Haiga are pictures — paintings, sketches, photos —  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 calendars.

a blue tongue
and a red mustache –
trading snow cones

suddenly too small —
his guilty face
