Water World Summer ~ #003 June 2014 – Haiga and Haibun for Friday Fictioneers Photo Prompt

Shadow World


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
a reflection

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.
