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
