Troiku: a double peony.

Some time ago I wrote a Carpe Diem Preview on a new creative form of writing haiku, the troiku. This post is another try on this new creative way of writing haiku. I love the way how this new form asks me to think about writing haiku. It’s, in my opinion, a great way of writing haiku and I enjoyed writing this post very much.

The ‘sleigh’ is inspired on a haiku by Issa (a classic haiku master) and it was a Carpe Diem Special a few days ago.

pink flowers bloom
between green dewy leaves
a double peony

(sleigh):

pink flowers bloom
between green dewy leaves
a double peony

(horse 1)

pink flowers
as far as man can see –
purple sea

(horse 2)

between green dewy leaves
hides a little green frog
for the blue heron

(horse 3)

a double peony
in full bloom in my garden –
a dawning sun

Maybe you will try it yourself? Than please link your Troiku to the linking widget of an earlier post, which you can reach HERE
