Haiku and haibun update

I'm delighted that one of my haiku came third in the recent Sketchbook kukai (haiku contest voted on by the participants). Another of my haiku came joint sixth. Thanks for everyone who voted for me! You can read all the haiku here.

I am also delighted to have a haibun in the first issue of A Hundred Gourds, a lovely new journal devoted to haiku, haibun and similar poetic forms. Yu can read my haibun here.

That haibun really gives you shivers, as should anything with the word "bun" in it, I guess. What are the rules for formatting a haibun?

Dave King said...

Great news. Congrats and very much deserved.

Well done, Juliet. Hundred Gourds is a great addition to the world of haiku and Japanese forms. I have a few in the haiku section.

Congratulations on your good work! So much imagery in so few words always amazes me.

Karen - a haibun is basically a combination of prose and haiku.
