Haibun Road Roundup Week 16

Haibun Road Writing Challenge Roundup Week 16

We are finishing up the sixteenth week of Haibun Road, a weekly haibun challenge . I invited you to write a short paragraph and a haiku inspired by Basho notices chestnut flowers that passerbys don’t see 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 sketchingwords.com and myself.

Haibun Road Week 16 by sketchingwords.com shares a lovely summer’s moment.

Haibun : Miniature Museum, Tucson, Arizona by Cactus Haiku takes a walk among tiny scenes.

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 Monday or early Tuesday A.M.). Haibuns can be any time during the week as pingbacks or pasted into comments. If you are on a social network, just paste your haibun’s link. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to paste in the haibun as a comment.

You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon. Today I tried “museum poetry” after trying “haibun” which didn’t work again. It’s weird haibun doesn’t return results since it does when I go to Amazon. Results can vary on different days.Today the results were pretty cool with “museum poetry.” I was introduced to Origami and Haiku: Inspired by Japanese Artwork , a cool intersection showing works from the British Museum, and a haiku to go along with the origami instructions for 13 animals. If you buy it new, it also includes 50 origami sheets. How cool is that?
