Really Spring

Spring came to our yard a while ago,
Proposed by daffodils, seconded by hyacinths,
But today I opened the door to sudden tulips,
Boisterous, red, and callously cheerful,
Saying, “Spring is here. Deal with it.”

~Tamary Shoemaker
(No prompt today, just those tulips!)

  1. Like the way your word choices (sudden, boisterous, and callously) add a dynamic energy to this piece :-)
