on a silent night


Here I use a haiku by Chevrefeuille to create a “troiku” which is a unique form invented by our host at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.  Like a Russian troika, the original haiku is the “sleigh” pulled by the 3 “horses”/haiku verses.


silent night

snow falls softly on the graveyard

the Savior is born



on a silent night

cold moon casts wolf’s grey shadow

abrupt bunny tracks


snow falls softly on

the graveyard where family

lays fir bough wreath


the Savior is born!

child in manger embodies

resurrection hope
