One-Bun – Travelling by train – July 1, 2015


Travelling by train

I discover that each station has its own special quality and personality – but people’s faces seem all the same …

Tokubetsudesu #50 one-bun

The one-bun is an ultra-short haibun which has just one line of prose (including the title) and a (one-line) haiku invented by Jim Kacian. I will give examples of this one-bun written by Jim Kacian.

The light

of the most distant stars, which describes for us the size and age of the universe, won’t reach us for aeons, leaving us to imagine …

dark space the red shift of my mind

The second week

traveling by myself I cross the continental divide, and everything that once ran in one way now runs in another, down and down

on the surface of dark water my face

And our host has written a one-bun also:


shares its sweet perfume as this summer day runs to an end, while I enjoy the coolness and the warmth of her naked body next to mine …

hot summer day the sweet scent of Honeysuckle and the one I love

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
