Troiku – August Rain

001

.

“Poetry is just the

evidence of life.

If your life is

burning well,

poetry is just

the ash.”

.

~ Leonard Cohen

A Twixt and Tween troiku*

.

August Rain

.

water lilies bloom

floating on the quiet pond

summers tranquil best

.

water lilies bloom

nectar for the damsel fly

beauty for mans soul

.

the clouds reflections

floating on the quiet pond

thunderstorms brewing

.

replenishing rain

rain drops and insects droning

summers tranquil best

.

ME and the Boss

.

* A creative alteration of the original Troiku form.
In this form the first stanza shares the first line of the origina haiku.
The second line is the middle line of the second stanza.
The third line is the last line in the last section.
