#Haikai Challenge #182 : Transformation — Daffodil / Ides of March

on

 

3 Months of Daffodils Mixture - Michigan Bulb

neon lemon lights
flicker and sway in March wind —
daffodils mantra

neon lemon lights
choreograph sun’s embrace
forever today

flicker and sway in March wind
with tinkling windchimes’
sweet arrhythmia

daffodils mantra
hums spring’s bright opening act —
winter’s curtain rise

Today’s offering is in troiku form.

    Beautiful, lyrical, full of promise. I’ve never heard of troiku, either. So also… enlightening! 🙂
