Haibun Road : Roundup Week 8

Haibun Road Writing Challenge Roundup Week 8

We are finishing up the eighth week of Haibun Road, a weekly haibun challenge from two weeks.  I appreciate everybody’s patience for missing last week as I was in California. At that time I invited you to write a short paragraph and a haiku inspired by the tenth paragraph and haiku from Basho in Oku no Hosomichi (translated most often as Narrow Road to the North or Narrow Road to the Interior).

This week we had two haibuns from Sgeoil and myself.

Land of the Living Skies by Sgeoil shares the beautiful prairie skies

T is for Lost Trails by Cactus Haiku remembers a mountain road in Japan.

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. Today’s search term was “basho”. When I tried “haibun skies” and “haibun trails”, Amazon returned no results so I went back to grand master of haibuns.
