Haibun for Big Tent Poetry

Big Tent Poetry prompts: write about travel (real or imagined) using the haibun form




Archer's Target


A red, orange and yellow swirl of curl soothes the restless sky where Archer hides while soaring colors dance and wave with thermal loops.

bound to earth

The bobbin spins meters of freedom before gravity gives in and the swirl continues its final flight.

I like the images in your haibun! Nice work.

Wonderful. Just how I see kites .My computer screen wallpaper is a photo I took of my son's kite above a local beach. I cropped son out of the picture, to leave the kite as focus.

Your fractals are fabulous, too.

Many layers in almost every image, disturbing and fascinating at the same time.

Best wishes

Hi Sue,
I have been enjoying catching up with your poetry this evening. Always a delight.
Sometimes when I come to visit I will make a note or two. Tonight I made ten! I do not know the Haibun form.
I shall look it up.
Your word paintings have left me smiling tonight.
Thanks!
Sherry

Wonderful haibun. And of course, your haiku excel as always.

I love fractals, it is so easy to just get pulled in and stay for a while. Which is much how I felt while reading your words. Good response to the prompt,

Elizabeth

I loved your "J" is for jello and am already sweating over "k."

The fractals seem so interesting. I need to learn about them.

I saw just this when I was at the beach this week! Your spare words captured it perfectly!

I'm intrigued by the way you used the idea of a journey here. It's a very distinctive take.

Your poetry is so different. I have read many American poetry and well, yours sound like Shakespeare's. Most of the time I don't understand half of what the artist is trying to say without pausing to analyze. Forgive me, I am new to this stuff, but enjoying the word mystery. Smiles.
