VALENTINE'S DAY HAIGA
~ WHChaikumultimedia members only ~
Please read the
instructions very carefully...all the way down.;-)
Since this is a holiday not celebrated everywhere in the world, we should try to express something special and/or traditional about Valentine's Day to show the world how we now celebrate, using February/early winter kigo and/or meaningful themes of celebration...our cupids, paper hearts from school, presents of wonderful chocolates and of course flowers and messages of sweet love.

Each artist may submit up to two works, one each in the following categories:
1) a haiga in your choice of style and choice of haiku (either old master or an original) with a kigo appropriate to February...as wild or as cozy as you like.;-)
2) a Valentine haiga: you must include a heart(s) and/or flower(s) somewhere in the image and a haiku (either old master or original) that includes the word 'love'
Your final images, including borders, may be up to 600 pixels in either length or width,
