Peace Haiku

Okay, this one turned out a bit weird. 🙂

I wrote another haiku and decided to use Manga Studio to illustrate it.  I have to say, I enjoyed the process even if the results weren’t quite what I had in mind at the start.

Whale Haiku Finished

Whale Haiku Finished

Whale Haiku WIP

Yesterday there was some good news regarding whale conservation.  It inspired me to write a whale haiku to follow on from the dolphin haiku that I did recently.  Here’s the work in progress (WIP):

whalesThere are reference sketches of Internet whales* on the left.  The unfinished doodle is on the right.  You can click on the picture to enlarge it.  If you still can’t read the words, they say:

We may look grumpy

But we are smiling inside

Thank you I.C.J.

We should probably have thanked a lot of other people too but the International Court of Justice initials fit nicely into the haiku format.

* All kinds of animals live on the Internet it seems.

Dolphin Haiku

To all the haiku aficionados reading this post, I apologise profusely.  It’s my first haiku so I hope you will forgive me.  I haven’t followed all the rules, and it’s about as subtle as a sledgehammer.  (Click to enlarge, if you dare.)

I wrote this because I can’t get the Taiji Cove massacres out of my head.  Dolphins are complicated creatures.  They have much in common with humans, including a darker side.  However, their childlike curiosity and joyful play makes man’s cruel treachery at places like Taiji Cove seem positively evil.  It makes me ashamed to be human.
