Welcome to Haibun Thinking. A weekly challenge to get your creative juices running. The challenge is to create something from one of the prompts below using the form of the Haibun. A piece of work ending in a Haiku style poem of three lines. After you have completed it, please add your link to the InLinkz frog creature for all to read.
Thank you for taking part.
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 week is Freestyle week. You can either use anything you like as a prompt, although here are the ones from the last few weeks if you need an idea.
“All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain.”
~ Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner)
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!
How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book!”
~ Jane Austen (Pride & Prejudice)
