Historical Haibun

In 2013 I started writing what I loosely called “Historical Haibun,” adding haiku to well-known historical texts, from Shakespeare to Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln to Lewis Carroll, creating a different sort of haibun. I hope that the addition of the poem re-energizes the historic prose. My gratitude to the editors of Contemporary Haibun Online and Drifting Sands Haibun for publishing these pieces.
