Haibun Road : Roundup Week 6

Haibun Road Writing Challenge Roundup Week 6

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

I am thrilled this week as we had the most ever contributors and I love everybody’s haibun.  I hope you will check them out too.

Haibun – A Bishop’s Walk by Culture Shocks created a fun fictional flash fiction not only as a haibun but also incorporating several word prompts of the day peppered throughout.

Haibun Road by Sketching Words wrote an ode to an early morning run. Love the way she built in the rhythm of her  running into the haibun.

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). Haibuns can be any time during the week as pingbacks or pasted into comments.

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

Links are to haibun books on Amazon (I’m an affiliate but it’s also easy to throw in a search term like “haibun dreams” 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.).

As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a fee if you click on the above links and buy something, typically 2-5%. It buys me a cup of coffee. Your price remains the same and I appreciate it.
