Poetic Forms: The Haibun

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

The haibun is a Japanese form of poetry popularized by Matsuo Basho. It is prose (or a prose poem) combined with one or more haiku. Most commonly only one haiku is included, placed after the prose, and serving as a climax or epiphany to what came before. These two pieces should work together, playing off one another. One can be an explanation for the other if you like. I’m sure there are other ways you can find to link them together. Have fun with it.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,
