THE HAIBUN GALLERY: 1st September — a Thursday feature

Hosts: Firdaus Parvez and Kala Ramesh

1st September 2022

This week we begin and end with two quotes:

You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it tick . . . You’re back with the mystery of having been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps . . . so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in. – Dylan Thomas

Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn. – Thomas Gray

Give us a haibun that breathes and burns and thunders into your readers' minds!! Go for it!

As always, a good haibun will find its way into the next issue of our fabulous journal. Firdaus and I are eagerly looking forward to reading your haibun.


1. Only two haibun per poet per prompt.

2. Share your best-polished pieces.

3. Please do not post something in a hurry or something you have just written. Let it simmer for a while.

4. When poets give suggestions and if you agree to them - post your final edited version on top of your original version.

5. Don't forget to give feedback on others' poems.

We are delighted to open the comment thread for you to share your unpublished haibun (within 300 words) to be considered for inclusion in the haikuKATHA monthly journal.
