Building Blocks of History 29th March

Things happen every day, big and small. Together they make our family history, our local history, our country’s history and sometimes they become part of global history.

All of these things happened on 29th March in years gone by.

In 239 BC Halley’s comet came closest to the sun on its first recorded passage.

In 1827 10,000 mourners paid their respects at Beethoven’s funeral.

In 1871 Queen Victoria opened the Royal Albert Hall.

In 2016 we visited the Triangular Lodge.

Celestial music

Astronomical wonders

Inspiring brilliance.

Welcome to Haiga Heaven Weekly Challenge!

Regular visitors know, I love Haigas.

Traditionally, Japanese Haigas are a complimentary combination of a haiku and simple painting. Modern Haiga writers embrace a range of visual media including photography and graphics.

Join me, having fun, creating new Haigas, using your favourite medium.

If you want to join in,  you’ll find a new prompt to inspire your  Haiga  every Sunday.  Add a link in the comments box to share your Haiga.

I look forward to seeing your take on this week prompt – Visage.



Her stately visage

and elegant countenance

veil secret dangers.

Outwitting adversaries.

Such a precarious life.
