THE HAIBUN GALLERY: 29th September — a Thursday feature

Updated: Oct 2

Hosts: Firdaus Parvez and Kala Ramesh

29th September 2022

Two beautiful quotes from a beautiful person. See if this can help you to write a good sensitive haibun.


“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle that we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”


Thich Nhat Hanh, The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation



Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.


Thich Nhat Hanh

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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.


PLEASE NOTE:

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We are delighted to open the comment thread for you to share your unpublished haibun (within 300 words) to be considered for inclusion in the haikuKATHA monthly journal.
