About my fractal poetry form
that came about from my symbolic Cantor
research. The idea was that Haiku had more of a Cantor like structure
but was too short for it to show up in the word frequence Zipf dimensional
count. So I invented a longer Haiku form
with the same threes structure( a three of threes).
(Mathematics people seem variously offended
that I like Lewis Carrol might stray into poety
as well as music...)
My tricoo ( fractal poetry form)
actually sound better with the robot behind it than a AShakespeare sonnet?
There are only like six or seven examples ( mostly by me ) of tricoo.
One by a semi-famous New Zealand poet
who does Haiku poetry.
Patricia Prime's tricoo:
mountains sprinkled with snowflakes
a haze down in the valley
ti-tree already in bloom
friends meet in the hills
the world at their feet
only one way up
long walk back to the city
from stillness and peace
to the noise and the bustle
So here are the first last and only tricoo so far.

Tricoo: example poems
Tricoo is three sets of Haiku poems in which sequences A, B, C and A,A, A all
make poems: six poems in all. The idea came from a discussion with my nephew
Mark Scott Bagula about a form of poetry he was developing and exposure to the
works of Neca Stoller and Patricia Prime. I am not a good Haiku poet, so my
examples are pretty lame, but the idea comes across anyway.

Ode To The Dead Race of Man
(Tricoo in the Cantor form)
by Roger L. Bagula 21 Feb. 2001©
Sing a song in our name
Blast it out loud and strong
Of a people, now, of earth.
(Zen negative triplet)
We were not brave or strong
None of us had wisdom or beauty
Nor will our building or works be long remembered.
Write the music well
Make the words of heavy tongue
These were men and women of wonder.
( They will be long gone.)
Animal Forms ( Tricoo)
by Roger L. Bagula 30 Jan 2000©
Should salamander rule?
Don’t be a fool!
He’ll eat us alive!
Is frog his friend?
His lily pad is so cool!
He only eats fly!
Does pig takes sides?
Lights and siren in a still pool?
He flushes down life!
Beastly Beauty ( Tricoo)
by Roger L. Bagula 31 Jan 2000©
My heart is a beast
My mate is met
But never mine
My life is a dog
Unwanted in purgatory
But ranges free
My fate is a frog
But my soul’s a beauty!
Song of War Heroes
or (Zen negative) Coward’s Lament
(Tricoo in a Cantor Form)
by Roger L. Bagula 21 Feb. 2001©
Proud words and shouts of glory
That hit our souls deep
And sting like poisoned arrows.
Never remember that day
Or talk of those dread actions
Stop your ears from phrases remembering heroes.
Conquerors of all the land
They left their blood low on the earth
That we might be forever free.
( these are more examples of content than
the haiku like structure of Tricoo).
The Frog and His Bird (Tricoo)
by Roger L. Bagula 30 July 2001©
Damp frog on moss covered rock
Floating lily pond
Living with the loneliness
On his long legs standing there
The crane appears wise
His fast strike impales the frog
For tomorrow after work
Mocking bird does frog
