This is Day 2 of my 30 Day Challenge. Today’s piece of writing will be a ‘haibun’.
A haibun is a terse, relatively short piece of prose which is finished off with a haiku. Most haibun range from well under 100 words to 200 or 300 words.

It appears they plan to move in a week on Tuesday.
the ferocious fire
swept away all in its path –
ready for new life
