My response to the #FWF Free Write Friday Prompt: First Kiss for May 23, 2014 on Kellie Elmore’s dotcom blog.

My response is in the form of haiga and haibun. Two of the many Haiku and Related Forms in the field of poetry.

  • Haibun is prose or poetry (other than haiku) plus one or more haiku.
  • Haiga is image which includes haiku as a part of the image—image and haiku as one work.
