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.
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.
