The Haiga of Terry Ingram

I’ve been excited about these haiga for a long time.

Terry Ingram‘s haikus (available here for anyone who wants, no – needs, more) are these tiny flashes of lightning in a nighttime thunderstorm. After the electricity has gone out, for one brief second they illuminate something in a way you have never seen or considered it,  before life returns to darkness.

Ingram has put image to word in the form of haiga to make that little flash of illumination that much brighter. And for the very first time, I am showcasing his work here on my blog!

Perhaps selfishly, I picked out the haiga which spoke to me the most- those which play on the endless nights that settle across an urban landscape in late fall, leaving rooftop smoker’s faces a little too white in the light of the moon.

I know you’ll enjoy these as much as I do.
