Haibun Thinking – February 3rd 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.

This week is film week. Only two or three people are taking part in this, so there will not be that many more posts on Haibun Thinking.

Haibun Thinking – January 6th 2015

Thank you all for bearing with me over the Christmas period. Hopefully we will be back to normal now, or at least very soon. I hope you all had a safe New Year. Good luck in all of your endeavours that you have planned – or are not yet planned – for 2015.

I am still after photos and art for that part of the prompts. If you want to share, you will have a link back, I will not claim any as mine, then please send to:

HAIBUN THINKING – October 7th 2014

Haibun Thinking makes its return this week after a six month absence.

A 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).

If you want to see some examples, here are a few links to example Haibun,

Ego by Anja Partin

And Music Of The Past by AnElephantCant

New Horizons by Michael Grogan

Earth Day by Al

A Haibun for the Howling Moon by Penny

If you wish to submit a piece of art or a photo, please send them to: haibunchallenge@gmail.com

A Haibun is a piece of fiction or non-fiction that you feel from either of the prompts, and this ends with a rough Haiku. The “normal” Haiku is three lines long with a set amount of syllables. Line one has five syllables, line two has seven, and line three has five. This is a Haiku at the end of a Haibun that Anja wrote:

words can mean the world (5)
or shattering silent sounds (7)
listen for the beat (5)

Just because the standard has the set has 5/7/5 does not mean yours has to. As long as it is three lines and kind of sums up the story or finalises it.

after all not all lines (6)
can be summed up in (6)
specific syllables (7)

……….

If you take part, please include your post in the froggy.

Haibun Thinking: Week 12 – April 8th 2014

This week’s Haibun Thinking is “Freestyle” Week. This is to produce a Haibun with no prompt. After thinking about this, I felt this may not be helpful to everybody, so I decided that you can either use anything of your choice as a prompt, or if you have difficulty trying to get something to come to you, then you can use one of the prompts already used. I have included all six of the previous photos, art piece or quotes.

Feel free to have a go, it is fun.

Haibun Thinking: Week 9 – March 18th 2014

Thank you to everyone who has taken part in the Haibun Challenges, and a special thank you to every one who has had a go for the first time. We appreciate your coming by and having a go. Remember that there is no getting told off for doing anything “wrong” writing should be fun first and foremost.

As it is film week, we are going to try and associate the quote with the image, so there is a similarity. Of course it may take you in an entirely new direction that you never thought it would, but that is the fun of it all.

Please remember to add your link to the InlInkz widget so that others may enjoy what you have written as well.
