[flower in this haiga from google dot com]

REVISED HAIKU © gillena cox
morning breeze -
dew from a flower
moistens the earth


murky pond -
the dew drops on the lotus
different shapes

FUSION HAIKU © gillena cox
all the dewdrops
will eventually roll off
into the pond

TROIKU: DEWDROPS © gillena cox
all the dewdrops -
sparkling diamonds on
flower and leaf

eventually rolled -
into the potted earth
dewdrops nourish

into the pond
waters merge -
no more dewdrops

Blog hopping today with

Carpe Diiem #1551
Dew Of The World (Revise That Haiku ... Hineri)

koborete wa tada no mizunari beni no tsuyu

the dew of the rouge flower,
when it is spilled
is simply water
© Chiyo-Ni

hasu no ha ni kono yo no tsuyu wa magarikeri

on the lotus leaf,
the dew of this world
is distorted
© Issa

1. Revise the both haiku;
2. Create a "fusion"-haiku with the revised versions;
3. Compose a Troiku with your "fusion"-haiku.
