Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a joy to present you an all new episode of our special feature Tokubetsudesu. This time I love to challenge you to write a troiku.
Troiku is a haiku form which I have invented and I will give a brief description of this way of writing haiku. Troiku is a compound word which I distilled from the Russian sleigh "troika" and the Japanese poetry form "haiku".
The goal is to write a haiku (the sleigh) and to write three new haiku (the horses) by using the three lines of the haiku (the sleigh). I will give an example:
The complete four stanza are called troiku. More about this Troiku you can read in the article mentioned in the above menu or by clicking HERE.
The challenge of this Tokubetsudesu episode is clear I think ... you have to create/compose a Troiku.
Here is a new Troiku written by myself. This troiku is inspired on one of the Tarot cards, part of the Great Arcana, The Hermit (IX). More about The Hermit (IX) you can read HERE.
Here is my Troiku "seeking knowledge":
getting deeper insight
seeking refuge high up in the mountains
closer to the gods
This CD Tokubetsudesu episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until September 25th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our next episode, a new CD Special themed Autumn, later on. For now ... have fun!
