Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, April 11th 2018 … One-bun

nature of greece 1

Dear friends of MLMM,

It’s my pleasure to bring a new Heeding Haiku With … episode to you. Maybe you know that I have my own weblog too, a kind of daily haiku-meme. This month the theme at my own weblog is “go and tell your story” and it’s all about haibun.

As you know haibun is a kind of Japanese poetry in which you use prose and poetry. I think you all will know that renown haibun by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), “The Small Road Into The Deep North” (or Oku-No-Hosomichi). It’s a real Japanese classic and I have read it several times. Every time I read his haibun I discover new things … it almost feels like his haibun is alive …

There are more kinds of haibun than we mostly use here. There is e.g. the kikobun, but there also is the so called “one-bun”, a haibun-form invented by Jim Kacian. Let me give you a description of the “one-bun”:

The one-bun is an ultra-short haibun which has just one line of prose (including the title) and a (one-line) haiku. I will give an example of this one-bun written by Jim himself.

The light

of the most distant stars, which describes for us the size and age of the universe, won’t reach us for aeons, leaving us to imagine …

Here is your challenge: create a “one-bun” and share it with us here at MLMM. Of course if you only want to share a haiku that’s okay too. I have no theme for this episode, but in Japan it’s spring and maybe you can use that as a theme for your “one-bun” or haiku.

Have fun!

About Chèvrefeuille

I am a Dutch haiku poet. And I am the owner and host of the weblog "Carpe Diem, a daily haiku meme" on Blogger (or Blogspot). I am writing haiku since the late eighties and in 2005 I became an international known haiku poet and in 2011 ten of my haiku were included in a worldwide anthology "Spasms of Light". With that anthology I became an even more known haiku poet. In October 2012 I started my daily haiku meme.
