Creation of Fiction

A Haibun

Suddenly he broke his silence and in tattered voice with terribly frightened, wide- open eyes, spoke, “ A strong wave of light caught me on the bed and pulled me out through the closed door as if my body could penetrate any solid matter wood or steel. In the spur of a moment, I was gliding in the space without wings. Something invisible was controlling me without holding. I was passing through the planets like a flashlight. Though I was not feeling at speed yet scenes in front of my eyes were mysteriously getting changed at the batting of an eye. Reaching somewhere in the space I was sucked and extracted. Just after that I opened my eyes and found lying on my bed. I know no one will believe me. I am absolutely sane and truly narrating what happened to me last night.”

Haibun is a poetry form that combines a haiku with a prose poem. Haibun prose is usually descriptive. It uses sparse, poetic imagery to evoke a sensory impression in the reader. The section of prose is then followed by a haiku that serves to deepen the meaning of the prose, either by intensifying its themes or serving as a juxtaposition to the prose’s content.

Humanity calls, “Wake up.”

Stand united to face Devil’s threat to Mankind.

It is not too late to wake up as a man not as American, Chinese, Spanish or Russian, or African, Asian, European or Australian, Christian or Muslim or Hindu or Buddhist. Our human race is attacked not a citizen of any nation. Let the nations remain within narrow confinements of their political cocoon and economic shield.

It is a time to rise a man for a man- who is divine creation of Almighty, not the boundaries, not the lofty ideals and not the rigid principles cleverly designed, all these are man-made for deliberate isolation from the eternal truth.

arise and awake

man calls to man not nation

80s haibun-poem poem poetry prompt

Decade of Futuristic Innovations

# SCWBI Challenge- My first attempt at Haibun Poem on the prompt- 80’s

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.

not innovation

but a change in attitude

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

Here find the wisdom at play on the prompt:
