Lose control – Shadorma + Troiku

Seasons change

Before wistful eyes

Moments drift

Each morning

Collapses into red dusk

Rewind and repeat

Keep myself busy

Let time do the rest of it

Floating with the tide

Keep myself busy

Trick my mind with distraction

Doesn’t always work

Let time do the rest of it

It heals wounds, that’s what they say

Pain fades, won’t erase

Floating with the tide

I can’t fight with this current

Lay back, lose control

Dear Readers,

I saw this really interesting prompt by Mind Love Misery’s Menagerie for a Troiku. As explained on the page, a Troiku is a poem that is derived by expanding each line of a haiku into its own separate poem. Kind of makes it feel like we are giving the parent haiku an elaborate explanation or a louder voice. This form was invented by Kristjaan Panneman back in 2012.

The prompt gave the option of including a Shadorma as well if the responder desires. The first 6 lines of this poem make up the Shadorma. A Shadorma is a non-rhyming poem with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5

The next 3 lines comprise of the parent haiku. The last three verses are the haikus derived from the first haiku

Hope you enjoyed this form and please do visit Mind Love Misery’s Menagerie for the full explanation of the form! 🙂
