Cheer

“A poet is

a nightingale,

who sits in darkness

and sings to cheer

its own solitude

with sweet sounds.”

~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

Troiku

.

the rainy season
thunder and lightening daily
swamps are being born

the rainy season
daylight goes from long to short
warm oceans give birth

raining cats and dogs
thunder and lightening daily
life’s vital water

Mother Natures gifts
the Great Creators bounty
swamps are being born

ME and the Boss

.

.

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