a garnet-streaked tulip, valentine,
in a field of daffodils
than the newborn springtime sun
than my favorite denim, softest sweater,
my cowgirl boots
like lace and pearls
by the bed, on the floor

a little bit of a late valentine...smiles. for ian.
the semper augustus was the most rare and valuable tulip at the height of tulipomania in the 17th century ($5,700 for a single bulb!).
