visual haiku: (my own definition) So my idea is 3 images that imply much without explicitly showing the idea/feeling using no words. other people mayve a different idea of what it is.
- 3 images (like 3 lines): 2 short and 1 long or 2 long and 1 short.
- Preferably nature related but doesn’t have to be (in which case it is a visual senryu 😉 )
- Not the detailed perfection of an oil painting but rather the impressionistic feel of ink on silk
- The 3 images should add up to this: “Originally, the haiku form was restricted in subject matter to an objective description of nature suggestive of one of the seasons, evoking a definite, though unstated, emotional response…Later its subject range was broadened, but it remained an art of expressing much and suggesting more in the fewest possible words. ” Encyclopædia Britannica.
