Dreaming with Tulips

From a bulb inside earth’s womb
roots penetrate the soil –
luminous through snow
candescent colours 
overflow the boundaries of time.

Tulips vibrantly answer the call –
stems grow beyond 
the edges of vases,
curve like rivers,   
forge in new directions 
and define for themselves
who they are.

Unafraid of transition,
tulips allow the flow of life 
to turn their insides into 
buttercup yellow elixir
falling on fairies 
like a gentle halo –
Ophelia’s spirit
