OLWG #72- A Haibun, of Sorts

 This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The modified haibun, below, was written for practice. I opted for an American Sentence instead of a Tanka or Haiku. Practice makes perfect.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.



The canyon shone golden in the early morning sunlight and dust motes floated like lightning bugs. Clouds, powered by an onshore breeze, scudded inland across blue coloured skies and a dusty black Jeep crouched beneath the willow at the verge of the mesa that was “Lion’s Camp.” Nick Dash had unpacked the picnic basket and now waited, watching fledgelings race the clouds overhead. He heard Victoria’s truck approaching before he saw it crest the rise at the edge of the camp. She parked next to the Jeep and swung down. This day had been carefully planned for weeks; and she thought Nick looked great in the first light of day, his eyes gleaming, competing with the dawn.

Big Nick’s day was filled with promise, sandwiches, and opportunities


This week’s prompts are:

  1. If it’s too perfect
  2. move along
  3. one of the girls

Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!
Write something
Ready, Set, Go – you have 25 minutes, but if that is not possible, take as long as you need.

Have fun
