B&P Shadorma and Beyond – The Troiku

What is a troiku … it’s an invented haiku variation created by Kristjaan Panneman, better known to you as Chèvrefeuille of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and our author for Heeding Haiku with Ha! He invented the troiku back in November of 2012 (click the link troiku above for his introduction).

Here’s how it works …

you write a haiku … for example:

the persimmons fall
even the last fruit is ripe
now the snow may fall

now I break it up into its parts … and write a haiku from each line:

the persimmons fall
for the pleasure of the ants
in October

even the last fruit is ripe
pull out the winter duvet
rake up the leaves

now the snow may fall
all the fruits now harvested
the swallows long gone

white water curtain
the sound of a waterfall
pouring onto me

white water curtain
sparkling like diamonds
breezy paradise

the sound of a waterfall
stridently trickling down
refreshingly good

pouring onto me
the sound of the autumn leaves
as the wind whispers
