NaPoWriMo Day 9 – Tulips

I was inspired to write this tanka after work today. Tulips are popping their heads up everywhere at the moment, another sign spring is here! πŸ™‚

Β The sight of tulips

blazing in the sunshine

bold, bright, beautiful,

flaming red flamboyancy

lights a fire in my heart.

  2. Gorgeous Becky! My dad used to call mum Tulip! 😊 Xx


    • That’s a lovely pet name! My mum calls me sweetpea πŸ™‚ thank you Christine! xx


  3. Another lovely poem Becky. I love “flaming red flamboyancy”. I know your photos of flowers are beautiful too – could you combine the two? πŸ™‚


    • Thank you! For me tulips are very showy, flamboyant flowers, it’s what I love about them πŸ™‚ I have a new blog for all things plant-related, it’s – all my nature photos are now on there! Check it out if you have time πŸ™‚ x
