Shaped by memory, dream, imagination, real events and experience, language helps tell our stories.

Haibun blends prose with haiku and offers a dynamic platform for expression — one that is not limited by theme, content or context; one that simultaneously glides across both mindscape and landscape; one where the writing often unravels more than what the eye witnesses.

This expansive view is possible in a haibun because it embodies the idea of link and shift. Its successful shape rests on how the writers achieve this link and shift from the title to the prose and from the prose to the haiku. 

The haibun (less than 300 words) submitted here will be considered for inclusion in haikuKATHA monthly magazine!
