Easter Sunday
I paint a free range egg
a bright blue

Please visit Area 17 for a haiga by newcomer Mrs Chris Hulbert, who was one of a few who braved the elements back in March, and consider leaving a comment that she can read: Herefordshire Haiku: poems on the move

I can't get the comments on area 17 to come up so let me say here Mrs Hulbert's haiga are brilliant - nice haiku here alan

Thanks John!

I'll relay your comments onto my blog comments. I just tested it so it should work.

I must admit I was very impressed with her artwork and haiku. We only had a very brief one-to-one talk and I just handed her a haiku worksheet to take home! ;-)

You used great spring and Easter images with the egg and blue. I enjoyed the thought about the egg being "free".

Your library program of bringing haiku out into the community is fascinating.

Very nice. Blue is my favorite color for easter eggs!

Painting the egg bright blue symbolised, for me, a kind of reaching for the sky!

Lovely post!

Love your haiku.

Thanks for the referral to Mrs.... oops forgot the name - but they were beautiful indeed.
