A haibun is a short piece of prose followed by a haiku that expands upon the theme or depth of the prose, though it is not necessarily related directly to the prose. See my and the other winning haibun for examples. Also, haiku of publication quality are generally not written in 5-7-5 form. Learn more about what a haiku is, and is not, here.
I am very excited to be able to share this piece, along with the judges' commentary, and I hope to have more good news of this kind in the future!
