Good day dear friends and followers,

As you maybe know we had two kukai at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and to share the haiku which were submitted for these kukai I have created an all new E-book “Petal Lanterns”. This E-book is now available for downloading at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

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.

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