Carpe Diem Special *Lolly’s “spring tidings” *

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is a tanka, written by a wonderful haiku poetess Laura Williams a.k.a. Lolly of Lovely Things:

* * *
spring tidings …
a message of the flowers
to decipher
a secret little alphabet
that begins with a bee

* * *

Here’ s my attempt to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
growing older
with each new blossom
even a bumblebee

* * *
