Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
The key specification is that a kikôbun involves movement of the writer, in that it is a short travel diary. The haiku should not repeat what is in the prose, and should not attempt to ′globalise’ the prose like a conclusion.

We walked through the forest for hours that day, a few days ago, Yasuko and I.
“As much as you want,” I said, and together we tried new paths that led us over old hills, on snow that covered the landscape and made it hers, for she enjoyed it so much.

A wonderful kikobun and I think this kikobun can be a lot more for CDHK, maybe I will create another new feature in which kikobun will play the head character.
This CD-Special is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until February 17th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our next episode, intuition, later on.
