chilly winds -
the colours of Autumn dance
their final whirls

fusion haiku

moon over the water -
scooping up a handful
holding its light

troiku formed from fusion haiku

holding its light
even the rocks hold sway
under its brilliance

scooping up a handful -
the night sea ripples
cool over my hands

moon over the water -
driving home to their future
the new bride and groom

the water-fowl
pecks and shivers
the moon on the waves

scooping up the moon
in the wash bassin,
and spilling it

I kept hanging the moon
on the pine tree, and taking it off,
gazing at it the while

Lovely full page of troiku and haiku imbued with atmosphere. Is so interesting to read and get the feeling of the environment, and climate, and a little bit more!

I love your troiku with a twist so to say, because of the interchange of the first and third line of your fusion ku. Wonderful.
