Contest Description


Write a new haibun on the theme:

"Angels danced the day you were born, 

and they wept when they welcomed you home"

-luloo

HAIBUN DEFINITION: COMPRISED OF PROSE FOLLOWED BY HAIKU/SENRYU (look up prose if needed please)

Feel free to read my example (Poem of the week 6-26-16) -has nothing to do with the theme of this contest. It's just an example

Please follow directions:

1.) ONLY ONE paragraph of prose, which means only ONE haiku/senryu 

2.) Title must be: "Angels Danced"

3.) Syllable count: howmanysyllables.com

4.) Pack it with emotion, depth, metaphors, even darkness

5.) Date at bottom (no need for any other info, up to you)

6.) Please center entire haibun (if you know how)

7.) Lastly, WOWOWOWOW me! Show me how deep you can go with this one. Make me laugh and cry, feel the sorrow yet with the possibility of healing

FYI: I JUDGE BLIND AND HAVE ALWAYS JUDGED BLIND :) 

Many thanks and good luck PS! Be blessed & hugs :)
