Haibun Thinking – January 13th 2015

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 after photos to use as the prompt. If you want to donate one of your photos, then send them to:



“…you can,
you should,
and if you’re brave enough to start,
you will.”
(Stephen KingOn Writing: A Memoir Of The Craft)

    1. Thanks Jules. With the latest changes they have done with the notifications, links no longer work on the comments. I thought they had given up on the idea of using these. Obviously they just lulled us into a false sense of security

        1. Froggy’s are having a difficult time … at MLMM we had to go around the difficulty taking the image part of the froggy code and redirecting it to our media editor for the image. Seems Sunday Whirl also had the same problem this week.

          1. Might be better for the time being … though we did get Mr. Linky to work once Jen, from Blog it or Lose it! figured out what the problem was. She also spent a lot of time trying to get a fix from W.P. with no results, sigh, so we have to take that extra step to put the Mr. Linky up.
