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.

Thank you to everybody who has taken part. I enjoy reading the pieces that are created. It is amazing how real life and fiction can be created from an image or a phrase. It is enjoyable and I love seeing them. Thank you.
