A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
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.

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.
When you have written your haiku, please TAG Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille and Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.
