Water World Summer ~ #003 June 2014 – Haiga and Haibun for Friday Fictioneers Photo Prompt
candles. seashells. debris and treasure slip into the sea. before Mt. Fuji. i wander. this woodblock print. sky. sea. mountain. shore. dwarf my being. an ancient land. that once. this now.
the planet spins. summer. winter. blossoms. flower and snow.
i return. to candle heat. this scent. and sea. a reflection. meditation. vision. dream. meandering.
keyboard clatter. words trickle across the screen. where is he going? has he been?
night. an end. a beginning. dawn.
memory fading. birds call.
i awaken. into sleep. this throat throttling growl. a motorcycle. . . . fading.
my story ends. in this dream. centering. around a dream.
this water world summer

My response is in the form of haiga and haibun. Two of the many Haiku and Related Forms in the field of poetry.
- Haibun as I see it is prose or poetry (other than haiku) plus one or more haiku.
- Haiga as I see it is image which includes haiku as part of the image—image and haiku as one work.
