Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome to a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … As you (maybe) know I have invented an all new creative way of haiku-ing, Troiku. This week’s Heeding Haiku With … I love to challenge you (again) to create a Troiku.

Let me give you a brief description of Troiku. The goal of Troiku is to create three new haiku starting with the three separated lines of a given haiku. I will try to make it “visible”. The Troiku was inspired on the Russian troika, a sled with three horses.

In Troiku the “sled” is the haiku to start with. Then you take the three separated lines of the “sled”. Those three separated lines you have to use for the “horses”. Line 1 is the first haiku (horse 1); line 2 is the second haiku (horse 2) and line 3 is the third haiku (horse 3). Of course in Troiku you have no need to follow the 5-7-5 syllables count, just because it can’t.

Here is the haiku (“sled”) to work with:

the low lands are facing the dark
snow falls softly

For the Troiku you separate the three lines. Every line becomes the first line of the three new haiku. (Line 1 for haiku 1; line 2 for haiku 2; line 3 for haiku 3).

Enjoy your week, see you next week at MLMM.

Have fun!
