Sledding Haibun Poetry

Haibun Poetry


Frankie lays the turquoise toboggan on the edge of the snowy hill. He sits down and jerks himself forward—again and again.

Until he races down the slope to the field below.

Then he tows his toboggan back up the hill. And goes down again.

And again.

And again!

more collisions
shivering on the hilltop
this frigid day

Image Curve’s Manifesto


Frank J. Tassone

I fell in love with writing ever since I wrote my first short story at the age of 12 and my first poem in high school. My free-verse has appeared in the literary e-zine Pif. My haibun has been published in Cattails, Haibun Today, Contemporary Haibun Online (CHO) and Contemporary Haibun, CHO's annual print anthology. My haiku has been published by the Haiku Foundation. My senryu has been published in Failed Haiku. I regularly perform haibun and other haikai with Rockland Poets. I am honored to be a part of the Image Curve community as a contributing poet. Visit my website to see more of my poetry. Follow me on twitter @fjtassone2 and like my Facebook page American Haijin for updates on my latest work.
