Defining Haiku here at Lunch Break that's 30 days, November 1st - 30th of haiku features

Yesterday evening, i meet in person, for the first time, a haiku friend from the USA. Tye is a member of my Patch Work haiku group and participates in several collaborations, here at Lunch Break. Though Tye is absolutely not a cheese eater, we agree to meet and lime at Roxy Pizza Hut, after negotiating a cheese free serving of meatballs and spaghetti for him, and personal pineapple and ham pizza and a glass of white wine for me, we slip into a lovely meal, and talk about haiku and haiku friends we have in common, oh and at some point the music of Trinidad and Tobago. I gift Tye with a copy of my first haiku publication 'Moments'. We eat and talk and talk and talk until near time for his folks to come pick him up. Tye is so gracious, he says he doesn't mind at all having to carry the book wrapped in a plastic bag; he being a haijin is rarely empty handed, he always has a notebook or pencil in hand. Tye is flying back home to the USA today. Wishing Tye a safe and comfortable flight. Hope your visit to Trinidad enriches you in a marvelous haiku way

Today's note - haibun


Sometimes haiku is teamed with prose in telling a story; when this occurs, the haijin has extended into the realm of haibun. And here the haiku should complement, and add dimension to the prose which is written in present tense even if retelling a past happening


I invite you to share some of your expertise on haibun with me

Thank you Adelaide for

Coffee in the café, her daily routine. Many of the same faces. Busy people. Lonely people. Happy. Sad. She was one of many. Who cared? Did she? Not enough. Would she die like this, uncaring and uncared for?

Haibun can be about memories, a travel account (but not written like a travel guide)a description of a present event, a study in nature, even a bit of fiction.

Here us one I wrote after observing for several days a lone woman in a cafe.It combines a description of an observed event with a bit of fiction.
