Remember, the range of haibun is broad and often includes autobiography, diary, essay, prose poem, short story and travel journal. Keep the prose is in the present tense, no longer than 180 words. The haiku completes the haibun.

  1. Write a haibun in the form of an autobiography or short story, this will be the prose poem. Tell us about a moment in your life story, bring us into the heart of your story. End your haibun with a haiku. You can include additional haiku if you like.

Go for it.  I look forward to reading your haibun!
