Carpe Diem #1672 Troiku Month (1) unexpected guests

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new month of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month I will challenge you to create Troiku, maybe a Hineri Troiku, but that's not sure today. As you maybe know ... I invented the Troiku back in 2012. It's a new creative way of haiku-ing, based on creativity and free-styling.
Troiku starts with a (given) haiku and than the goal is to create three new haiku with the separated lines of the (given) haiku. The first line you have to use as the first line of the first new haiku, the second line is the first line of the second new haiku and the third line of the given haiku is the first line of the third new haiku you have to create. Sounds difficult? Maybe ... above in the menu you can find an item about Troiku.

I will give you an example of a Troiku taken from our exclusive CDHK E-book "Flamingo-Clouds":

all day sunrise
what a joy to live in
my orange house

all day sunrise
Mother Nature is confused
the longest day

what a joy to live in
a world full of fantasy
patches of clouds

my orange house
save harbor for my children
‘till when will it last?

I think this Troiku explains what the goal is this month. I will give you a haiku to work with and create your Troiku with. This month will be fun I think and I hope that you all will participate in this new challenging month of our wonderful Haiku Kai.

Field Flowers

For this first episode I have a beautiful haiku created by Jane Reichhold:

gathering flowers
unexpected guests
come to dinner

A nice haiku to create a Troiku with I think ... looking forward to your responses.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 9th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on.
