The Macintosh the first consumer computer in 80’s for the people not equipped with programing skills carved the first sentence on the PC Monitor to germinate a seed of Virtual World far bigger than real in microchips to grow into a largest tree in future to shelter a vast and wide cover of wisdom and knowledge.

A new era of entertainment dawned when video surpassed audio. A period of Rubik’s cubes, annoying bits of digital shorthand called “Emotions” and Mcdonald’s crispy chicken roasts the Mc nugget. The rise of a movie mocking empire, in-car audio, VCR, Cable TV, Cellphones, and Fax machines had ever been wonders, were born with a genetic code ever advancing.

A Haibun Poem is the combination of two poems: a prose poem and haiku. The form was popularized by the 17th century Japanese poet Matsuo Basho. Both the prose poem and haiku typically communicate with each other, though poets employ different strategies for this communication — some doing so subtly, while others are more direct. My first attempt at Haibun Poem is inspired by Saloni Joshi
