Ligo Haibun Challenge – Photo Prompt

Welcome to the Ligo Haibun Challenge. We have two photo prompts this week. Do select and write on the one that moves you and stirs your imagination.











Here are the rules for the challenge:

  • the haiku/collection of haiku related to the text to close. The haiku should be as authentic as possible, with therefore no syllable count, no capitals or full stop, all ideally making 220 word max.
  • Wear the Ligo badge to the right with pride on your blog! And pin the Circle of Appreciation if your haibun is selected as a honourable mention
  • Prizes are given on special occasions – earrings, scarves etc..

After posting your haibun, do add it to the link collection below.

The special mentions for last week’s Ligo haibun challenge are as follows:

KZ: Conflicting emotions in the heart, but peace wins in the end. This is a moving tale of personal tragedy, written with depth and feeling.

Anelephant: War is no means to peace. A touching story with an emotional haiku.

Simon: Finding inner peace with nature. Lovely haibun and beautiful imagery.

  1. AnElephantCant deny it
    This challenge is no piece of cake
    He finds war totally hateful
    And therefore is grateful
    For the invitation from lovely Nightlake

    He is honoured – and quite astonished – at this special mention.
    Thank you.

    • Well-deserved, Elephant, and you are welcome. It was considerably difficult to decide on three mentions as so many of them were written so well. Pirate feels the same. Thank you for taking part in the challenge.

  3. Padmini, I’m pleased to join your haibun challenge photo prompt. I choose the second photo. Please find my haiku contributions as follows:-
    In the midst of leaves
    Lie a white petal with thin corn
    Staying peacefully without any disturbance.
