Wings of love (Troiku)

The challenge here is to write a troiku using a haiku, Chèvrefeuille has chosen for us written by Basho.

restlessly they rise up
a cloud of flowers

butterflies and birds
wrestle cozy idleness – or,
nature’s bounty

restlessly they rise up
unfurled wings rousing wafts,
filled with grace

a cloud of flowers
beckon to be suckled
swell of sweet nectar

    1. What a nice compliment, thank you, Celestine. I have been too busy to truly dedicate to writing as I like, so your words come at a perfect time, blessings! x


    1. Thanks, it is fun trying to create a troika from a haiku written by one of the great Masters…I am sure he was not thinking this but I went with what it said to me. That`s what I like about haiku…many read what we write and see something else and that`s okay. It reminds me of my aunt`s comment when we try to interpret her paintings …she rarely tells someone what she was thinking when she was creating her artwork. She says if it speaks to you in different words, that`s okay. One series she was doing genesis and I saw only genitalia…told her it would be great for a sex ed class…lol. What makes me laugh more is she hung this series in her local church…:D

      1. I think she’s got the right of it … very often people read such deep thoughts in my haiku … and maybe I was thinking about something completely different 😉
