Hello my fellow poets! Welcome to my final Haibun Monday posting of the year – both old and new faces are welcome here at the Pub to sit by the fire or at the bar or among the many tables scattered about.
I was reading the Night Before Christmas and was struck by the last line of the story poem: And to all a goodnight! I liked that ending as much as I liked Scrooge’s conversion in his story, A Christmas Carol.
So in keeping with the season or not, let us write a haibun about a good night. It can be a good night’s sleep, a fun time with family and/or friends, a night spent alone, a memorable Christmas night you tried to stay awake and wait to see Santa, a night out camping in the wilds, out sledding in the moonlight, your first date…any good night you wish to write about as long as 1)It is non-fiction 2) It happened directly to you 3) One to two tight paragraphs 4) You end it with a classical seasonal haiku.
I am keeping this posting short and simple.
If you are new to the pub, welcome! Here’s how to join in:
