look at a tulip
and walk on by…
Look, look at its
tailor could not replicate.
Soft pinks, glamorous yellows,
striking reds and passionate purples
dazzle us in this season of Spring.
yet, each year we
welcome their arrival.
The tulip bursting from
Littering life with loveliness.
Awe, if the tulips were the only trash
we needed to collect
to care for this garden
from which we, too, burst forth.
