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.

  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™‚
