A haibun is an ancient Japanese form used by Basho and others. It is poetic prose with a haiku. There are Zen components to haibun in those who write them, but they are also just fun to do. I started up my daily writing practice, which does involve a walking meditation called a ginko and mindfulness.
Here is a short article on haibun and how to write one:http://www.baymoon.com/~ariadne/form/haibun.htm
The most photographed part of the coast. Weston Beach, Point Lobos. Rocks like a moonscape. The minus tide reveals miniature worlds of feasting and famine. Beneath the eel grass, hermits claw for empty shells. An owl limpet protects its pasture of algae from invaders. Sculpins dart and dash, always returning to their own pool. Stars invade the crevices, seeking that slight entry point in a bearded mussel. All this, and yet motion seems still. The tide sucks back the waves.
