Tulip Season

Tulip Season

after the winter snow
   has melted away

hormones tell a bulb
      to send up glory

wonderful colour
   to the lands
above the surface


      warmth ends it
(for tulips it is over
petals fall until all
      that is left are
   stamens 

anthers)


we too have our seasons 
   a time of dubious glory
      a time inglorious

      and perhaps
   a time to prepare
for other wonders
but no clear end date

we seldom know
      when its time to go
