The tulips bloomed early this year, even for tulips. Now they're splayed in the morning sun, petals almost parallel to the wall holding their earthy womb in place. By tomorrow they'll be a pretty memory, leaves and stalks left naked until next year, when they'll perform their miracle again.
I wonder if, deep inside the living caskets that feed them during their long sleep, they dream of spring and know they'll be returning to sunshine and birdsong and admiration, or are they like us - ignorant of what comes after our brief and gaudy magnificence is stilled? ~ copyright 2017 RC deWinter
Early-blooming tulips, surrounded by hosta and other plants, display their wide-open petals in a spring garden at sunrise.
