Haibun Road : Roundup Week 7

Haibun Road Writing Challenge Roundup Week 7

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

We had two haibuns

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.
