NaPoWriMo: Tulips

Not long to go now. I can’t believe that the month has gone by so fast. Yesterday we were playing about with simile , hard-boiled simile typically exemplified in your favourite who-done-its.

Red-petaled tulips
stand proudly to attention
like recruits on a parade ground.


Weeds not allowed!
Yanked up by the strimmer blades
of a recruiting sergeant.

Yet on the green lawn,
daisies are running riot,
Glorious rainbow.
