a blossoming troiku

flautist gardener
first solo: to a wild rose
fragrance of music

flautist gardener

symphony of pink blossoms

trilling the high notes


solo: to wild rose

gardener hums while pruning

bees join orchestra


fragrance of music

softly floating vibrato

bow to pink applause

A troika ia a Russian sleigh pulled by a trio of horses hitched abreast of each other; a troiku is  a form of one base haiku (the sleigh) pulled by three stanzas (the horses), each beginning with a line from the original.   I’m not certain I’ve done it correctly but more information can be found at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai site on this interesting form!

    You did great Lynn …. nicely composed troiku. It’s great to see that the troiku begins to become more known.
