Tulips
The first flower
I recognized by name
as a child;  the first flower
I look for in the spring.
My oldest forty plus
years…yellow/ red
still blooms.
.
The rainbow
of colors, endless colors
… I long to see huge fields of tulips 
of every color and color combination.
Plain and fringed,  soft pastels
or bright as a box of crayons.
Earthly fireworks.
.
Photos can’t possibly
do the huge fields justice.
I must see for myself.
.
Tulips
as far as the eye can see…
if they were resilient as the sea,
I’d love to lay in the middle of a field
looking up to the sky through their
petals translucent and velvety
at the same time.
.
A patchwork quilt
from Mother Nature.
Heaven scented.
.
I’ve not had the blessing
to know til today that some
have a scent…my new quest
to grow  the scented blossoms
to remember with hope
when snow is deep
and the air is frigid.
.
Fields of tulips
as far as the eye can see.
In my dreams I can “swim”,
roll  around,  in the glorious
blossoms… for in my dreams
they’ll pop back up
unharmed.

Tulips
The first flower
I look for every spring.
The flowers I dream of in
deep of winter’s  snow.
Glorious spring tulips.
Springs sign of
JOY !!
