Ligo Haibun Challenge – Peace

Hi Friends,

This is time for the next Ligo haibun Challenge. The topic for this week is Peace. “Those who are at war with others are not at peace with themselves.” A quote by William Hazlitt

We welcome all of you to take part, encourage other participants and have fun.

Here are some easy-to-follow rules 🙂

  • The word limit is 220, haiku finish, making the haibun
  • Haiku suggested without capitals or punctuations
  • The haiku is preferably preceded by prose (For e.g., your personal experiences or stories)

Read more on Haibun here. After you have published your haibun, do add it to the link collection below so that all of us get to read it.

Each entry last week was excellent and we found it difficult to select the winners. Our Special Mentions in Dispatches for last week’s picture prompt are as follows:

  1. Sunshine: Plight of a poor family in a beautiful mountainous region. Poverty defeats budding life.
  2. Jody: Really different! The knack of seeing something that the others don’t.
  3. Sarah Ann Hall: ‘The Climb’ is an inspiring tale of hope against all odds.

Wear our blue Līgo Haībun badge with pride on your blog! Special Weekly Mentions in Dispatches may pin the Līgo Circle of Appreciation logo on their blog if they so desire.

Good luck to all!

  1. ♥ thank you, Ligo Haibun team for the special weekly mention. this touches me deeply and my hope is maybe somehow, a miracle can come about to help those suffering in extreme poverty. thank you, hostess Nightlake. ☼sunHUGS!

  2. so THIS is the place where the Ligo Haibun Challenge made its way! Thanks so much for getting me here! and thank you for the lovely mention. Sunshine’s is truly the most important message – hope everyone reads her contribution – and then decides to go help change those circumstances for others. Peace, -j

    • You are welcome, Jody:) Each contribution last week was very good and we found it tough to make a selection. We are yet to select the third special entry. Though poverty cannot be eliminated easily, it can at least be reduced by some efforts from common people like us.

  3. Great challenge. Indeed it is the inner turbulence in folks that make then go to war with others. They seek to reinforce their own belief that like them, others also hold inner turbulence.So what could we do to control?

    • Apply self to constructive thoughts and perhaps be more tolerant of other faiths and beliefs..but easier said than done. Would you want to take part in the challenge?
