Welcome to our sixth Haibun Monday! If this is your first attempt at haibun, please check out the the first one we had in September. That will give you some information about the haibun form.

Each month we use different prompts to trigger poetic creativity. So today I am using four of my photos for inspiration.  Choose one of them.  





I chose these photos as I feel they have an eerie and timeless quality and I hope they will inspire your poetry.

Once you have decided on a photo, let yourself get lost in it. You can either start with the prose or the haiku. What emotions does the photo evoke in you? Immerse yourself in its atmosphere and see what you come up with.

Since these are my photos, I would be most grateful if you attribute them to me.

Try to keep your haibun (which must be inspired by one of these photos for 6th Haibun Monday) reasonable in length, and use one single haiku at the end. Please also link back to dVerse.

As the prompt is open for a whole week, there is plenty of time to write, read and comment on everyone. Come back often to see what is new.  You ar most welcome to write more than one haibun.

When you post your haibun:
