HAIBUN THINKING – October 7th 2014

Haibun Thinking makes its return this week after a six month absence.

A Haibun is a Japanese literary form that combines one or more paragraphs of your written narrative (prose) with a concentrated (short) poem – the haiku. Hai stands for haiku, bun stands for prose.

The haibun and/or the haiku present a relationship between the nature of the human experience and ‘nature’ (the natural order of life).

If you want to see some examples, here are a few links to example Haibun,

Ego by Anja Partin

And Music Of The Past by AnElephantCant

New Horizons by Michael Grogan

Earth Day by Al

A Haibun for the Howling Moon by Penny

If you wish to submit a piece of art or a photo, please send them to: haibunchallenge@gmail.com

A Haibun is a piece of fiction or non-fiction that you feel from either of the prompts, and this ends with a rough Haiku. The “normal” Haiku is three lines long with a set amount of syllables. Line one has five syllables, line two has seven, and line three has five. This is a Haiku at the end of a Haibun that Anja wrote:

words can mean the world (5)
or shattering silent sounds (7)
listen for the beat (5)

Just because the standard has the set has 5/7/5 does not mean yours has to. As long as it is three lines and kind of sums up the story or finalises it.

after all not all lines (6)
can be summed up in (6)
specific syllables (7)

……….

If you take part, please include your post in the froggy.

Haibun Thinking: Week 15 – April 29th 2014

Every week the door opens for another Haibun challenge. The challenges take turns with Art, Literature, Film/Celebrity, or freestyle – where anything goes. This week is Art week, and we have another piece of artwork by the multi-talented Anja. If you would like to take part, then please click on the little froggy after creating your post and paste your details in there so we can all enjoy your written work.

*****IMPORTANT NOTE*****

This will, unfortunately be the final Haibun Thinking. My time has been limited as it is, and this week I start a course which may see me in a position of employment at the end of it, and I am sure you will understand, that takes precedence. I will still be running my Sunday Photo Fiction. I have enjoyed reading the last fifteen weeks, reading your Haibun, poetry and how you perceive the prompts.

Thank you to everybody who has taken part in this challenge over the weeks.

Haibun Thinking: Week 12 – April 8th 2014

This week’s Haibun Thinking is “Freestyle” Week. This is to produce a Haibun with no prompt. After thinking about this, I felt this may not be helpful to everybody, so I decided that you can either use anything of your choice as a prompt, or if you have difficulty trying to get something to come to you, then you can use one of the prompts already used. I have included all six of the previous photos, art piece or quotes.

Feel free to have a go, it is fun.

Haibun Thinking: Week 11 – April 1st 2014

Whoops. A couple of hours late this morning, I do apologise for that. I normally schedule the post for 6 am but I was distracted last night.

A Haibun is a written piece that has a main body of a piece of fiction, a piece of memory, a piece of history, a poem finished with a three-line Haiku style poem. If you want to find out more, there, are a few example Haibun at the top under the page “Example Haibun” or you can just click here.
