Troiku Poem – New Life

piece of straw

hanging from a new lambs mouth

gentle breeze it fell

blown off into emptiness

out the open door

a bird pick it up

a new beginning

lining a nest for young ones

by providing warmth

Troiku – Carpe Diem invented the Troiku, it is three haiku, with each of the three lines from a suggested haiku as the first line of each haiku in the troiku. It’s not always possible to have a 5-7-5 format in the second haiku, due to the limitations of the suggested haiku.

Don’t know what a Haiku poem is it is a unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. 

It is created by a vision, and paints a mental image in the reader’s mind.
