NaPoWriMo: Day 11

Today’s  challenge from NaPoWriMo.net is to write a tanka… a poem based on syllables, with the pattern being 5-7-5-7-7.   There can be one stanza, or multiples, based on this rule.

In Praise of Spring

I have to agree.

It was certainly something.

Quite the spectacle.

Tulips in Washington Park

shouting Spring! from golden throats.

In each of those cries,

I saw the tender curving

Of stem and stamen.

It made me want to join them

in a gaudy display, too.
