From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

July 21 (haibun)?

Here I am in my lavender colour jacket.
.
Earth your lavender grows in pots outside the shop.
.
Leaning in to the scent of peace and traquility.
.
Listing gratitude for my knowledge,
my memories and waiting time.
.
Offering my wellbeing that I can share this gentleness.
(earthello)
.
Lavender
smoky green
scented leaves growing
quietly in small pots.
Breathe.

  1. I’d call it a hybrid haibun 😉

    A beautiful Earth tribute and thanksgiving.

  3. Can I place a question. What is a haibun

  4. There are two main types of haibun:

    Matsuo Bashō composed the kind of haibun known as kikōbun, a travel journal, distinct from much shorter pieces, like diary entries or anecdotes, for which the Japanese term is nikki.

    From very short haibun:

    To longer haibun:

    There are also pieces of prose with five line poems (tanka) called tanka stories or “tanka prose”.

  5. I love lavender and have a big pot of it on my patio. The bees love it.

  6. I know technically that a haibun is supposed to have a haiku… but I think we can be creative and explore other options poetically so that’s why I call any prose with a combination of other short forms hybrid haibuns and that’s my story and I’m sticking to it 😀
