Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #35 Troiku Challenge “summer solstice”


between the wedded rocks (*)
the sun rises to her highest throne
summer solstice

mountain stream
the ice has melted – dances in the sun
crystal waterdrops

This challenge was to creat a fusion haiku using the two haiku by Chevrefeuille, and then create a Troiku from the fusion we created. Here is my attempt.


melted water drops
dancing in the summer sun
crystal between rocks

~

melted water drops
trickle between the rocks
mountain stream

dancing in the summer sun
welcoming the solstice
wedded rocks

crystal between rocks
like hidden gemstones
melted ice

Autumn Troiku

Carpe Diem Weekend-meditation #3 – Troiku

on the river
lights float to the horizon
the dead rejoice

© Basho

And here is my attempt at a Troiku based on Basho’s haiku

~
on the river
autumn leaves sail downstream
yellow boats

lights float to the horizon
drifting with the current
fallen leaves

the dead rejoice
in the change of seasons
earth lies fallow

autumn troiku

autumn winds blow
bare tree branches tremble
winter birds remain

autumn winds blow
brown leaves scatter across grass
swirling away

bare tree branches tremble
flock of doves gather
at sunset

winter birds remain
searching for leftover seeds
among spent flowers

Heavenly Scent Troiku

heavenly scent of
cherry blossoms linger
after her bath

————-

heavenly scent of
plum blossom wafts past window
on evening breeze

cherry blossoms linger
on the winding pathway home
as daylight fades

after her bath
she smooths her moistened skin
with fragrant herbs
