Videoku #001 ~ Wind ~ #009 February 2014 – Free Verse Haibun for #FWF Free Write Friday: Video Prompt (Plus) NaHaiWriMo Days 21 and 22
Words on Videoku #001 ~ Wind
on second thought. again. no, possibly the 93rd thought on posting this video. i wanted to try. because i like the idea. poetry sound. poetic sound. poetic visual. visual poetry.
okay. i’m a long way off knowing what appeals to me about this process. or maybe end product. still. . . . something. somehow. does appeal to me. do i have to know what i’m doing before i do it?
no. that’s not the way i work. or even play.
placing it out there. for you. to see. will force me to take a harder look.
seeing a strip of visual is. . . . has had a curious effect on me. it is not the visual that i see as much as what it triggers in me.
otherwise. i am unlikely to have shown this videoku on wind. my videoku on wind. with the most basic video recording device. and little experience with sound in this process. still. . . . trying is a good thing. imo.
i’m still not sure it is a wise thing to do. to show it. however it may free me up to do another. because i believe the next one i do will be better. and who said i had to be wise anyway?
we all place things out here. for others to see. for the public eye. is that a courage thing? or an ego thing? what is it we are doing? a like me thing?
so now. when i see a strip of video i’m looking at more than the video. i’m looking at how it is done. can i do that? what will i do different next time because i saw this? i like things. the silence in what i can see must have a sound. does the sound come to me because i hear no sound yet see the visual? interesting. exploration. isn’t that what we do? explore? even in a free write with a focus, yes. i think i do. explore. i like that.
is exploration for self only?
not when we place it before others.
where have i gone in this free write? heck. i was going to sleep. and then i looked up the free write challenge. and came here to write. and post. and maybe. let go.
a walk in wind
the sound of winter
a walk in wind

My response to the #FWF Free Write Friday: Silent Video Image Prompt—free verse for Kellie Elmore’s (.com) blog challenge of February 21, 2014..
This may or may not be acceptable as haibun or haibun thinking. I am presenting it in that format. Whether it is or is not I will leave up to others at this point.
Some of my haiku on days 21 and 22 for Michael Dylan Welch’s NaHaiWriMo (National Haiku Writing Month on Facebook) follow. Through NaHaiWriMo we are encouraged to write at least one haiku a day for the month of February (or all year long as the prompts continue all year long too). Prompts can be found on Facebook—which are optional. I post my daily haiku as I post, which means I may post several days together in one post. The haiku are from the days as indicated although they may not represent all I write on these days.
National Haiku Writing Month
1 haiku per day or more
BRUSSELS SPROUTS is the prompt for February 21, 2014
I check the menu a second time
I check the weather a second time
six more weeks of ice
on brussels sprout leaves
haiku this winter
of small writing implements
brussels sprouts ku
brussels sprouts I set the seed packet aside
the seed packet set aside
on the kitchen table
I have second thoughts
the soup cools quicker
than I want it to
the soup cools quicker
than I want it to this winter
the kids have homework
in contemplation tonight
I chop liver
a dinner party
I didn’t want to attend
BARN is the prompt for February 22, 2014
the trek to the barn
twice as long
fewer mice in the grain
