calligraphy serifs

Chèvre at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai challenges us to write “fusion troiku”: combine two classic haiku into one, then use for first lines of haiku series of three…


 

before the white chrysanthemum
the scissors hesitate
a moment

 

calligraphy of geese
against the sky—
the moon seals it

scent of cut blossom —

moon, like white chrysanthemum,

pale against dark sky

scent of cut blossoms

wafts delicate from altar

…fresh bridal bouquet

 

moon, like a white mum,

blooms full at summer solstice;

signs written in spheres

 

pale against dark sky

—revelations’ seven seals—

groom rides on white horse
