Dear haijin, visitors and travelers,
A new week has started already and it's time for a new episode of our Ghost Writer feature. This week I have a nice GW-post written by Jen of Blog It Or Lose It and this time she writes about Odilon, a painter. She writes in her post the following "Sometimes when I am feeling low on inspiration, I look to the art world for help". So Odilon can be inspirational ... we will see.
I think we all have once lack of inspiration. I do sometimes have lack of inspiration. To become inspired I am listening to music or I am going to read ... and most times than the inspiration will come back ... and of course my daily life, as a dad, granddad, husband, son, son in law, nurse and colleague can also be a source for inspiration. What are you doing to become inspired when you don't have inspiration?
Odilon for your inspiration

Keep in mind – this isn’t necessarily an exercise in writing about one painting, and one painting alone. [But if you choose to do so, that’s wonderful! It just makes your poem a haiga, not a haiku.] I’m just asking you to let the painting inspire your haiku in which you capture an imagined instant in time. (Remember that Buson’s “Spring Water” is an imagined instant in time.)
