dVerse Poets Haibun Monday

Today, let’s write a haibun that references Mezza Luna, or half-moon, however you perceive it. For those new to haibun, the form consists of one to a few paragraphs of prose—usually written in the present tense—that evoke an experience and are often non-fictional/autobiographical. They may be preceded or followed by one or more haiku—nature-based, using a seasonal image—that complement without directly repeating what the prose stated.

Writings based on phases of the moon intrigue as each one seems a story in its own. Might we ever conquer our curiosity and live in the moon’s atmosphere? Many books have been telling tales we will someday. Until then we stay curious about this satellite.

  1. I agree that ‘writings based on phases of the moon intrigue as each one seems a story in its own’, with today’s haibun as excellent examples of that. I love the double haiku, with the shyness of the ‘still visible sun’.
