This is the “blue-print” of the troiku:

butterflies and birds
restlessly they rise up
a cloud of flowers

butterflies and birds
no longer out and about
summer storm coming

restlessly they rise up
staging area abuzz
autumn migration

a cloud of flowers
lost in pollen tsunami
bees swept from their perch
