Gone Fishing Summer ~ #008 June 2014 – Haiga and Haibun for Friday Fictioneers Photo Prompt
Steel Hook No. 6
I slip into the chair. then into the past.
moments pass. waiting. as inevitable. as conversation.
my mouth full. of color. fingers. a gurgle straw. stainless steel. aches. numb. am I expected to spit? converse?
the scent. of yellow hours. the space needle stairwell. a rain journey.
snow remains in high places. creeks run full. early summer thaw. rampant. wildflower blossoms. vetch. lupin. trillium. foxglove. hound’s tongue. stonecrop. indian paintbrush. lady slipper. larkspur.
I wander these hillside sounds.
the wind. the mast of a ship. pine creak. dust. the scent of cedar. the fishing hole. where I chip a tooth.
an unlatched door
the scent of each color

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.
