The Carpe Diem Prompt for today is Tulips.

Mystic Black Tulip
Botanists turned Alchemist
Mania blossoms

Oh Turkish Delight
Crimson beauty trumpets spring
Worth double to dutch

~ | ~

Plums dance on pink sticks
Stretching necks towards spring sun
Dumas’ Musket Ears?

    On the MONEY ! WoW. Three top line haiku.

    I just checked, I can feel

    my cold breath warming,
    cold fingers feel more springy
    with this great post.

    Thank you for the inspiration of the photo and words.

  5. Like them all but, oh my, that first one blows me away. Botany. Alchemy. Mania. Three big words for such a little verse.

  7. Very nice series on tulips JRB, and that picture of the black tulips is awesome. The Dutch and tulips … yeah it’s really a mania here. We are proud on our tulips and love to share that proudness with the whole world. 🙂

      I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
      I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
      …love the song and your paraphrasing
