A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week I love to challenge you with an experiment. That experiment is called “one-bun”. Let me tell you a little bit more about “one-bun”.
The one-bun was invented by Jim Kacian. 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.
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 …
dark space the red shift of my mind
A wonderful one-bun, but it leaves us with more questions and riddles. For example: What does Jim mean with “the red shift of my mind”?
I am not that familiar with physics, but I know the idea of “red shift”; it means that the red color of the stars shows us that the universe is expanding and that the light of the stars takes more time to reach our beautiful planet, but what does Jim mean with his words “the red shift of my mind”? Can our mind shift from us? Or our soul, our spirit? Or our mood or our attention? Can our thoughts depart from us? Or our memories, our feelings? I don’t know …. I will give it a thought, maybe I will come up with an explanation … or will I let go this idea and leave you with the mystery?
Isn’t it a beautiful new “haibun-form”? I had to try it myself and here is my first ever one-bun:
shares its sweet perfume as this summer day runs to an end, while I enjoy the coolness and the warmth of her naked body next to mine …
hot summer day the sweet scent of Honeysuckle and the one I love
The challenge? Try to create an “one-bun” with a theme of your own choice. If you don’t want to try it than feel free to create a haiku themed “universe”.
