A Troiku Poem is based on a Haiku and to form the Troiku, each line from the Haiku is used to create 3 more Haikus.  For more detailed information and example click the first link above.

Breath Of Peace

the symbol of peace
a dove of holy beauty
vision of breath

the symbol of peace
descends upon and within
soul’s tranquility

a dove of holy beauty
divine in every aspect
untainted and pure

vision of breath
breathing life force into us
sustained eternal

Silent Beauty – Haiku-fusion Poem

MLMM Heeding Haiku With Chevrefeuille – Crossroads

I will give you two haiku by a classical haiku poet, two nice ones I think, and you have to create a new haiku, a fusion, between the scenes in the given haiku. 

Here are the two haiku to create your “fusion” with, two beauties by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), translations by Jane Reichhold:

from a treetop
emptiness dropped down
in a cicada shell

black forest
whatever you may say
a morning of snow

Cicada (mythology) … The cicada is an ancient polyvalent symbol: resounding themes are resurrection, immortality, spiritual realization and spiritual ecstasy.  (Wikipedia)

Silent Beauty

snow pure black forest
your beauty speaks through silence
from cicada shell
