Compassion rules (troiku)

Cold snap since last year
Persistent
Adding fresh snow

Cold snap since last year
Keeping the country captive
Prisoners of our homes

Persistent
Prayers for the bitter
Compassion comes first

Adding fresh show
Adorning
the cedar hedge

Mindful living (free verse – senryu)

Living in the past
Drudging old wounds
Healed a long time ago
Trying to make pain last

Living in the past
Choices some will make
Bitter and resentful
Controls their every move
Living in the past
Makes them prisoners
Of their own decisions
Trying to make pain last

Living in their past
Avenging all their lives
Masked and sugar coated
Happy with glee
Seeing others suffer
Pretending that they care
We all know where they fare
Always living in the past
Avenging their healed scars
Masking their resentment
In passive-aggressive moves
prisoner of their bitterness
Ignoring their mental health

Living in the past
Drudging old wounds
Healed a long time ago
Trying to make pain last

Hurtful memories
All forgotten starting fresh
Living mindfully

Snowstorms (troiku)

(C)CLR’17

After snowstorms
brisk walks on fresh fallen snow
Renewed peace

After snowstorms
rumbling
Of snow ploughs

Brisk walks on fresh fallen snow
Fluffy and white
Like icing sugar

Renewed peace
Lying on their backs
Making snow angels

Haiku Horizons

man in red (Troiku)

man dressed in red
pleading with his bell
fish bowl by his side

man dressed in red
arms filled with parcels
people passing by

pleading with his bell
shouting “’tis the season”
empty bellies wait

fish bowl by his side
prays for silent gifts
not the clink of coins

Haiku Horizons “Silence”

Summer breeze ~ Troiku

summer breeze
through the window
quivering blossoms

summer breeze
rustling leaves
muffling moans

through the window
nature procreates
caterwauls

quivering blossoms
stems gyrate with the wind
pure delight

morning gems Troiku

morning glory
garden graced with diamonds
winking at me

morning glory
sunbeams
on my window

garden graced with diamonds
touching every gently
ice melts in my hand

winking at me
follows me home safely
man on the moon

This is a troiku, a new form of haiku created by Chevreveuille at CarpeDiemHaikuKai  Written for HaikuHorizons: Ice

all saints’day (troiku)

taking their leave
marveling at the clouds
castles in the sky

taking their leave
an autumn ritual
falling into place

marvelling at the clouds
universal convention
gods united

castles in the sky
angels celebrating
all hallows’s Day

a looney or a tooney (troibun)

They passed by him one by one. The sun had just risen and many people shuffled South coming back from their night shift; they seemed to notice him and some would stop by and say hi, or offer him something; others were in their own world walking zombie like; they couldn’t wait to hit the pillow.

And then there was another crowd walking the other direction, very quickly going to their day job. Most of them did not notice him and some even smirked at him as if he were a nuisance.

After the weekend, the morning crowd was not always accommodating.

by the Métro door
sips the last of his coffee
folks rush by

by the Métro door
holds out his Tim Horton cup
longing heavy coins

sips the last of his coffee
the nurse in purple, brings him
every Monday

folks rush by
every hundredth person drops
a big fat toonie
