Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation – #31 Troiku – Bare Branches

Kristjaan – Challenges us  To Create a Troiku Poetry.

How to write a Troiku – you write a new haiku with ‘old pond’, ‘frogs jumped in’ and ‘sound of water’. 

Here is a sample

Troiku Old Pond

The Troiku is created from a haiku poem, The haiku I’m using is by Yozakura, the unknown haiku poet. and apprentice of Basho.

This Haiku has the syllable count 3/8/5, a Troiku does not have the rule of a usual English Haiku 5/7/5, it is impossible, so I will go with the flow as close as possible to the English Haiku.

bare branches
a painting against the blue sky
leaves under my feet

bare branches
possum eyes glaring at me
on a winters eve

a painting against the blue sky
sparkling from the sun rays beams
throwing gold shadows

leaves under my feet
breeze flicking them in the air
joys of late autumn

Will have to learn how to set the poem as the sample above. Wishing all my friends a happy peaceful week.
