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.

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).

A piece of fiction or a memory finishing with a Haiku style poem.

*****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.

Haibun Thinking: Week 10 – March 25th 2014

Thank you to everybody who has taken part. I enjoy reading the pieces that are created. It is amazing how real life and fiction can be created from an image or a phrase. It is enjoyable and I love seeing them. Thank you.

Haibun Thinking: Week 9 – March 18th 2014

Thank you to everyone who has taken part in the Haibun Challenges, and a special thank you to every one who has had a go for the first time. We appreciate your coming by and having a go. Remember that there is no getting told off for doing anything “wrong” writing should be fun first and foremost.

As it is film week, we are going to try and associate the quote with the image, so there is a similarity. Of course it may take you in an entirely new direction that you never thought it would, but that is the fun of it all.

Please remember to add your link to the InlInkz widget so that others may enjoy what you have written as well.

Haibun Thinking Week 7: March 4th 2014

I am still after more artwork. Anja’s art is fantastic, but I would also like to add work by other people as well. So this week, as it is Michelangelo’s birthday on Thursday, I thought I would use an image of his that I found on the web, and the original … copy … comes from Samui Art.

If you would like to send in art, please send to:

haibunchallenge@gmail.com

Please take a look at the About page for a little info on the Haibun, and if you want to have a go, then please add your link to the froggy where you can also see what others have written as well. Thank you all for taking part, we appreciate it.
