“Magical Protection,” A Haiga/Senryu

This week for my poetry challenge, the words were meaning and passion. I used the word, application for meaning, and the word spirit, for passion. My poetry reflects a human condition (fear) so it falls in the Senryu category.

I created a Haiga, that possibly is on the iffy side. The image directly reflects upon the words of my Senryu. So, does the image add something to my words? Do you get an alternate reading?

I thought about meditation when I wrote the Senryu but happened upon this image. I think the image conveys a different meaning. The background is spooky which causes me to wonder if the woman feels fear. What do you think?

Magical Protection

An application—
of magical protection,
my calm spirit soars.

    1. Thanks, Violet. Haiga have so much interpretation involved in them. It’s fun to try to strike the right balance between your words and the image. Nature Haiku is so much easier. It’s all great practice, though. ❤

    1. Great! I wanted different interpretations and I’m getting them. Haiga are all about how the art and words speak to you. I see so more in here. My Buddhism and Paganism often intertwine, so I feel some of that too. Thanks, Sis. ❤
