Haiga 762 -Toy Haiku 15
Kuni san's comment:
Haiku by Rita Odeh (Israel). Artwork by myself.
Rita-san sent me a batch of haiku about children. Among them, I found this haiku. It is about stone, like the previous post 761. The haiku seems to have some interesting layers of meaning other than kid having fun throwing stones.
As for the haiga, I considered the the excitements of children playing a game. I took out crayon for I thought that was a suitable medium to express the mood, and did the color drawing on white paper. I drew the stones in various colors to make the drawing look colorful. I then scan the drawing and added the background.
