HAIGA HEAVEN CHALLENGE 37 – MAGE

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 – Mage.

Kings and princes of
Machiavellian courts
besieged by rivals,

listen to the mage’s wise
counsel and shrewd strategies.
