Written for: Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #89 – Extreme Haibun . . . Rain
An extreme haibun is, as you maybe remember, a haibun is prose and poetry together, a kind of symbiosis so to say. I will give you a theme and than I challenge you to create an extreme haibun with a maximum of 100 words including the poems.
For this extreme haibun I have chosen the theme “RAIN”. Create a haibun themed rain and share it with us all here at our Haiku Kai.
Years ago, a powerful rain storm swept though our neighborhood. On one
of the main streets, stood a seafood restaurant, fronted by a large
boat. The rain raced down so fiercely, that the boat became unmoored,
and floated down the street.
No one was happy about the rainstorm; several basements in the
area were flooded. But the sight of that boat taking off down
the street, produced laughs and a good story to remember.
