Haibun Thinking – December 16th 2014

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.

I am still in need of photos if you wish to donate some: haibunchallenge@gmail.com

  1. AnElephantCant stop laughing
    He knows our American cousins’ pronunciation is off
    Because although
    They rhyme it with No
    We correctly pronounce it Vincent van Gogh

    Actually, in Dutch, it rhymes with the Scottish loch, but that wasn’t so funny.
