haiga artist Kuniharu Shimizu of Tokyo selects a haiku by Alan Summers for his artwork

Kuniharu Shimizu said:
" I like the contrast of the subject matters, big truck in the artwork, and a can of coke in the verse. However the sizes differ, both are man-made things, expressing their existence in their own ways."

Please feel free to add a comment or two both on this blog, and at Kuniharu Shimizu's website:

Donna Fleischer says:
"What an imaginative pairing. The gleam of the industrial world of machines and metal, and cans of cherry cola, with room for a morning star.

Posting this at my blog word pond, with delight! Thank you both!"
