Some things to keep in mind when writing haibun:
- The range of haibun is broad and frequently includes autobiography, diary, essay, prose poem, and travel journal.
- A haibun is a combination of prose and haiku.
- The prose is brief and simple and usually written in the present tense.
- The haiku should not attempt to repeat, quote, or explain the prose.
This week’s prompt is to write on your Thoughts about Spring. Go where the prompt leads.
As the weather warms, my bones ache less,
my muscles lose their tension, my thoughts wander,
I find time to enjoy life, I find myself thankful for all I have.
Bringing in new life
Colors blend with sights and sounds
Now for a fresh start
