Written for:  Carpe Diem #1711 Flowers (modern kigo)
“Today I have chosen a modern kigo from Jane Reichhold’s “A Dictionary of Haiku”, from the section Summer, subsection plants … today our theme is flowers. I have a nice haiku for you created by Jane and the task is to create a Troiku with it. (More on Troiku above in the menu).”  Here is the haiku to use for your Troiku:

depth of a flower
flying away with the bee
some mystery

© Jane Reichhold (1937-2016)

depth of a flower
pockets for pollination
happy bees

flying away with the bee
a tangled white kite rises
the sky buzzes

some mystery
nature unpredictable
as depth of flower


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
