Discover Haiga: My Exhibit Travels Again

Dear Readers and Followers:

As some of you know, I have a haiga exhibit that circulates 365 days a year. Sometimes I divide up the exhibit and have it running at two places at once.

Some of you are wondering “What is haiga?” It is haiku combined with an art medium of one’s choosing. As I always tell people, you can even combine haiku or (senryu) with embroidery.

Currently, I have an exhibit at Fremont Public Library, 1170 N. Midlothian Rd., in Mundelein, IL, (a Chicago suburb.) Other venues I’ve exhibited at include corporate buildings, convention centers, hospitals, and galleries.

I have nineteen pieces of haiga and haiku. I say haiku, too, as a few pieces stand on their own with haiku penned with illustrative calligraphy that accents its theme. In order to have an exhibit, of course, all pieces must be professionally framed.

Many of my pieces were gifted to me by literary organizations that awarded me prizes; some of the pieces were done by Lidia Rozmus, dear artist-friend, who has included her art and my haiku in her own exhibits; and others were done by me, including my own photography. So, I have pieces combined with graphic art, sumi-e paintings (ink and brush stroke) by Lidia, in addition to my own art. The art herein was done by Lidia.

This is my haiku reference book:

It is always gratifying to entice people to write haiku by drawing them into it with art. Many people might not even consider reading poetry unless the art first attracts them to it. I have spent thirty-eight long years practicing the literary arts and promoting them, too, for others’ participation and enjoyment. This recently culminated in my being honored with an Official Commendation by Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner for my achievements.

As a result of my recent exhibits, I recently decided to resurrect my calligraphy skills. When I was  eight through thirteen years old, I studied italics and became good at it. As we age, our penmanship usually deteriorates. I am beginning to take it up again, and would like to include more of my calligraphy in my haiku work.

Those of you who are already writing haiku, you, too,  might consider illustrating it with an art medium of your choosing!

Daily Haiku: June 12, 2018

GetFileAttachmentMarco Fraticelli, Canadian haikuist, has a new book out, A Thousand Years: The Haiku and Love Letters of Chiyo-ni.

 

 

Chiyo-Ni, 1703-1775, was one of Japan’s most renowned haiku poets –and actually, one of a few great women poets from an era when haiku was male-dominated. Her poems have a Zen-simplicity and sensuality, and reflect her life as a Buddhist nun and painter living an independent life.

 

Each entry in A Thousand Years contains a haiku written by Chiyo-ni and imagined letter to her former lover. The translations and inventions are by Fraticelli.

 

 

Here is a sampling of haiku from this uniquely-creative book:

 

 

 

 

wild violets

so deeply rooted

this woman’s desire

 

 

 

again the women

come to the fields

with unkempt hair

 

 

 

cloudy morning

already forgotten

last night’s fireflies

 

 

 

 

 

a dragonfly

chases its shadow

over flowing water

 

 

 

Fraticelli has been writing haiku for more than 40 years, and for much of this time, he served as an executive officer of Haiku Canada, editing numerous haiku anthologies. Fraticelli has won several international poetry prizes, and is publisher of King’s Road Press.

 

 

This book of 89 pages is elegantly-produced with a perfect (adhesive) binding.

 

 

For book ordering information, contact Fraticelli at  kingsroadpress@hotmail.com
