Haibun Road : Roundup Week 5

Haibun Road Writing Challenge Roundup Week 5

We are at the fifth week of Haibun Road, a weekly haibun challenge. This time I invited you to write a short paragraph and a haiku inspired by the fifth and sixth paragraph from Basho in Oku no Hosomichi (translated most often as Narrow Road to the North or Narrow Road to the Interior).

I’m a little sad this week as I’m the only contributor.  Although even I’m a bit late as I’ve just added my bit this morning.  I hope next week you will join me.

Haibun : footsteps by Cactus Haiku about my trip to Nikko, echoing my mother’s trip thirty years previously.

I hope you enjoyed or will enjoy reading them and that you will join us in our next haibun challenge (will be posted about 11pm Arizona Time).

Links are to haibun books on Amazon (I’m an affiliate but it’s also easy to throw in a search term like “new haibun” to find book titles there. While I buy books on Amazon, I also use the library and the local used and new brick&mortar bookstores to encourage publishers to keep publishing physical books and hopefully for the bookstores to last longer — who doesn’t love browsing through actual books? — although kindle is a god-send, especially for independent authors.).

You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon
