  2. It is good for friends to gather from afar to tell their stories.

  4. Untold stories simply must be told, don’t you think, Eugenia?
    My post goes along similar lines: https://wp.me/sVkLb-untold

  5. A nostalgic take, Eugenia! Lovely. 🙂 Here’s my take – https://iwriteher.com/2021/12/16/rigor-failed-me/

  6. Lovely, Eugi! Evokes a cosy feeling.

  7. How did you discover that you liked this form of poetry Eugenia? I like it as l like to read it, it’s not something l personally have a passion to produce perhaps more so because whilst l can read it and understand it as in comprehend the words, l don’t always get it. I prefer rhyming poetry because it is directly and straight talking. But how did you explore this to the degree that it seems to be very much a favourite style of yours?

    • I like rhyming poetry, as well, Rory! I got involved with Haiku and other syllabic poetry because of Colleen Chesebro and her challenges. https://wordcraftpoetry.com

      I love the challenge of trying to make a point in a very few words. And what is interesting is how readers interpret the poem. There are even shorter forms of poetry besides the Haiku.

      Here is Colleen’s definition of a Haiku – Haiku contains three lines following the short-long-short, 3-5-3, 2-3-2, (5-7-5 traditional) syllable count. Your haiku should contain approximately twelve syllables. We write haiku about nature, the seasons, a beautiful moment in nature, an emotional experience while in nature, or change. Haiku are untitled. The use of a Kigo (season word) is optional. Haiku do not rhyme. Do not use metaphors or similes in haiku.

      It’s the thrill of the chase, Rory! 😉

  8. Lovely, and nice prompt. Best wishes.

  16. Because I squashed with another prompt I got a tad long… but the haiku at the end of the haibun is a good summation…
    Well at least I think so; We All Know What ‘Assume’ Means; Don’t We?

  17. Beautiful & lyrical poem Eugi!
    ((hugs)) Sherri-Ellen (BellaSita Mum) & purrss BellaDharma

  18. Beautiful shot and beautiful words.

  20. Eugenia, this is your .org blog isn’t it? i know it reads as .com, but do you have this .com and a .org blog as well?

    • Hi Rory! Yes, it is my .org blog. I wanted to keep amanpan.com and transferred it from WP.com to Blue Host. I have only one blog. The domain name was because of my cat back then – Amanda Panda.

  21. Wonderful prompt and Christmas scene… May the joys of Christmas spread to untold hearts … That is not a poem… Just my wish for the world to remember the Gifts of giving from the heart should last all year… <3
    Love and Hugs dear Eugenia.. <3

  25. An untold story awaits in every blanket of fresh snow. Will a snowman or snow fort be built? Will it be a dry powdery snow or the wet sticky kind? What every story unfolds one thing for sure is the author is sure to have fun playing in the winter wonderland. 🙂
