Syracuse Poster Project Banner

Thomas Stock
Traditional haiku “rules” ask that certain elements such as “kigo” be included. Kigo translates as “season word,” a word which imparts an association with winter, spring, summer or fall. Free form haiku does not ask for this aspect, but I have always wanted to include kigo in my haiku.

For the Poster Project, I felt that there are different seasonal rhythms and moods any city such as Syracuse enjoys. Including a dreamy sense of summer appealed to me as a way to let readers return to an ethereal memory of childhood summers, capturing some fleeting summer light in a vessel of memory.

Combining visual art and a written art is a marriage of what all art should be.

Fireflies blink brightly
Caught in jars of summer dreams
Where I once left them.
