Haiku on Instagram for National Poetry Month 2013

Here is a collection of my daily haiku/haiga done through Instagram. I started using Phonto, a photo editor that works on my iPod to put the haiku directly onto the image. Have you tried this? If you are using Instagram let me know!

Not used Instagram looks fun. Love the cereal haiku.

Great idea, Andi! Thanks for sharing. Happy haiku-ing!

Your African violets clearly LOVE their windowsill. Thanks for sharing these neat Instagram/haiku pairings!

I do use Instagram, but not like this, Andi. These are terrific! I like the Cheerios!

What a great idea. I love seeing the haiku right on the image. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, very cool! And then you can post it on Facebook too, right? I'd love to see some haiku go viral!

Wow! I am so glad I found your blog! I feel like you could be such a good friend. I'm a high school librarian and poet who loves picture books. I am so divided at heart -- loving my job but miss the world of picture books. I am going to try to send you a few of my own haiku instagrams by way of introduction. Nice to meet ya! (found you over at the Missrumphius site). tess

These are awesome, Andi! A pair of purple Keds appear in my WIP, so that photo especially made me smile.

Though it feels a bit like cheating to illustrate a haiku I love your work. You had me at the purple sneaks. I'm going to give it a try. here's my today entry https://www.dropbox.com/s/i0kj8qvvy4qw11g/2013-04-11%2012.53.41.jpg Thanks for recommending the app too.

Judy I don't know why you say it feels like cheating. ;) The haiku masters in old Japan did "haiga" with paintings but I think photography works well. Check out http://www.dailyhaiga.org/
