Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #87: Troiku: Deep Silence

Plants thriving and green
Fade into the deep silence
If we do not care

Plants thriving and green
Live on in paintings and dreams
Rainforests now black

Fade into the deep silence
Our planet scarred and burned
Can we recover

If we do not care
There can be no hope at all
For plants lush and green


Our challenge today was to create a "Troiku". This is my first time working with this form, and I found it an enjoyable challenge. I wasn't quite sure what to do with my 7-syllable line in the "sleigh" part of my Troiku, so I have two seven-syllable lines in one of my stanzas. I hope that this is acceptable with this non-traditional form of Haiku.
