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.

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). (Penny Howe 2013)

    1. Thanks 🙂 That photo was one of the best days I had when I was living with the sociopath. It was a diving centre just up the road. The weather made it look (to me) like a Mediterranean resort.

  2. AEC hide his astonished delight
    Some things are easy but moving house is hard
    So he knows he has a pal
    When from his good friend Al
    (And his family) he receives a Happy New Home card

    Merci, mon ami, tu es vraiment un homme bien!
