Troiku : Seasons


What is a Troiku?

 In short you have to write three new haiku using the three separated lines of the given haiku as the first line. Go here to read more about Troiku .

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

butterflies and birds
restlessly they rise up
a cloud of flowers
(© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

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
