new horizons

A “troiku” linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. A troiku takes original haiku and make three new haiku beginning with lines from the original.

Original haiku, inspired by Jane Reichhold’s haiku:

the night is shortened

dark clouds disappear at dawn

with a rising sun

My troiku, using lines of original:

the night is shortened

when sweetly blessed with deep sleep

awaken refreshed

dark clouds disappear

stars now slowly extinguish

and clear dawn will break

with a rising sun

tea time on new patio

you and i greet day

    The “pretty good” comment is an understatement.  All the pieces of this response to a tricky challenge fit together with beauty and ingenuity reminiscent of the best proofs in math.
