This calendar year, I’ve been fairly ambitious, adding increasingly more writing prompts to my weekly blogging schedule. This recently renewed search for new sources of inspiration began back in January; and Go Dog Go Café’s Haibun Wednesday, run by Donna, was one of the first I committed to.
Sadly, that journey has now come to an end, as Donna is moving on to other pursuits. It’s been a lovely ride, and I feel very indebted to Donna for her generosity of spirit.
So, now I am left to wonder… what other weekly writing prompts come out on Wednesdays? Or… should I continue writing a weekly haibun on Wednesdays, albeit all by my lonesome?

Go Dog Go Cafe’s Haibun Wednesday
- This week’s Haibun Wednesday is a non-prompt, as host Donna Matthews is moving on to other things… so, sadly, there’s no prompt to write to.
- From Poetry.org:
- In How to Haiku, Bruce Ross writes, “If a haiku is an insight into a moment of experience, a haibun is the story or narrative of how one came to have that experience.”

Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
