writeALONG! 28th March

A TUESDAY FEATURE

host: Muskaan Ahuja, Lakshmi Iyer

guest editor: R. Suresh Babu


Ready,Steady and Shoot !


"The eye should learn to listen before it looks."


---  Robert Frank


A good haiku works like your camera. Haiku is both a science and an art. It is not just capturing an image by an act of observation or mindfulness. It is how best the image is processed in your mind or heart and what kind of resolution or pixel you are going to add so that the reader can feel the aha moment. A very important technique in photography is contrast.


This week I ask you use the technique of colour contrast in your haiku. Imagine that your Kigo is about spring or the season of spring. And spring is a season of warmth, brightness like a painter’s palette but remember the image you are going to juxtapose with your kigo should be dull and grey. It is left to your understanding and creativity to do that, and it certainly shall induce an emotion in the reader.


Use the colour contrast theory in photography to your haiku like a silhouette

of a fisherman’s boat against a bright evening sky or a Christmas tree against

the colour of fresh snow...
