Carpe Diem #1711 flowers (modern kigo) - Troiku

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a delayed episode of our wonderful Haiku Kai. My excuses for being this late, but today it was to hot to create a new episode. Another weather record has been broken here in The Netherlands. Today it was almost 41 degrees Celsius and that's hot for our Dutch people. It is still hot right now (23:00 hr) almost 30 degrees Celsius and I am sweating as I have never done before.

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

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until August 1st at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new weekend meditation later on. For now ... enjoy the beauty of summer flowers.
