OA HNA haiga art card poster 18x13.jpg

Haiga designed for the North America Haiku conference, August 2009, in Ottawa, Canada -
five days of great poetry with a fine community of poets from East and West;
the logo represents the conference theme of "crosscurrents", and in this particular haiga, I selected three haiku by Japanese poets from varying historical periods and schools of poetic tradition. It is an unusual haiga in that I wrote the calligraphies overlapping and intermingling, just as the crosscurrents from the various historical traditions, countries, and people come together to create new and different poetic and artistic currents today.
