The Echo of the Vale (Haibun)

The moon for long is curtain by the clouds. Its glow can be though feel as an outline for the clouds. The travellers speed up their movements. They has heard of some unnatural phenomenon going for a last couple of months. Did you hear that…one ask another in shaken whisper voice. Another nod his head in negative.

distance she like one tonight

but moon will be full 

The moon suddenly come out of the clouds. The field becomes white; the trees there cast a long shadow. She looks behind hearing a noise. The hunter has been on her for last few days. She needs to be careful more than she was last full moon. She felt a usurp inside her. She knows it has begun. She ran to the deep in the forest.

vale echo her howl two

travellers forget path

hunter fail to aim

  1. Haibuns are a lot of fun because they make you write in first person so you are always there in the action, so to speak. When I write them I use this rule to help me cover the requirements: “each haibun should include travel, seasonal and nature”
    You have done well if this is your first try at the haibun Sangbad…
