Have you ever glimpsed the moon reclining on its back?
I watch this striking performance;.
When she- pregnant –
With aspiration.
Sits unaccompanied and in a puddle of expression.
I wonder if she could rest,
in those reflections
Eternally.

Ageing Moon
Swollen with isolation
The night- is over.

Samantha, once more I applaud your writing talent.  You have some cool lines in this, it's beautiful in it's celebration of it's bounty and in the exploration of the other side of the coin - it's loneliness.  I'm keeping this one

Take care,
Melissa~

Like this loads.

This line grabs and holds on:

Sits unaccompanied and in a puddle of expression.

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

to all who took the time to read and reply, thank you sincerely, it means so much


and to sven

The form of Japanese poetry known as haibun first developed from a Japanese writer taking a journey and composing a diary of his travels in a mix of brief prose, haiku and sketches. Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) is perhaps the master of haibun. During the last years of his life, he traveled by foot throughout Japan, writing of his five journeys in terse combinations of prose and haiku. Basho’s The Narrow Road to the Deep North relates his five-month journey of 1,500 miles north of Edo in1689 where he wrote of the wilds.


WHAT IS HAIBUN?
Haibun is a combination of prose strong in imagery and at least one haiku. The prose in a haibun is trimmed to its essence just as a haiku is composed of few words chosen for their particular meaning. A haibun relates a journey, whether the travels are a physical exploration of the world or an internal journey of discovery. Often haibun contain a revelation or epiphany obtained through experience. The prose can reflect fragmented thoughts or complete sentences, but the sentences are tight with all the words serving a purpose. It is important to note that a haibun is not a short story.

HOW MANY HAIKU?
Some traditionalists believe that haibun should be written with the prose portion first, ending with only one haiku. As more writers discover this form, the boundaries of style and format have grown to include more than one haiku interwoven with prose. The writer can arrange and intersperse the prose and haiku in whatever format suits the piece; however, the haiku is separated from the prose and written in haiku format. There is no set length to a haibun.

The haiku in a haibun does not have to relate directly to the subject matter. It is the reader who must decipher the link between the prose and the haiku — no explanation is necessary. The haiku connected to a haibun might be considered a microburst of detail.

HAIBUN ESSENTIALS

Haibun relates a journey
Is a combination of prose and haiku
The writing is sparse, tight
With strong imagery
It imparts a revelation

I hope this helps

regards

Sammie
