A TULIP BULB ~ secret for me contains

Concealed within its embryonic corm

Its colours & its structure ~ thus remains

Secret until the Tulip Flowers form !


Concealed within its embryonic corm

Its roots - unseen - the nutrient soil reveres

Secret until the Tulip Flowers form

Then from the Bulb a bright green shoot appears !


Its roots - unseen - the nutrient soil reveres 

They transport ~ Water N P K ~ to grow the Plant

Then from the Bulb a bright green shoot appears

The colour of the TULIP ~ the Bulbs DNA will grant !


They transport ~ Water N P K ~ to grow the Plant 

I bought the Bulbs for colours ~ Precious so to ME

The colour of the TULIP ~ Bulbs DNA will grant

As they open RED & YELLOW ~ should be revealed ~ SI SI !


I bought the Bulbs for colours ~ Precious  so to ME

Colores de Bandera d*Espana 

As they open RED & YELLOW ~ should be revealed ~ SI SI

Rojo y Amarillo ~ colores muy Grande !


Colores de Bandera d*Espana

Its colours and its structure thus remains

Rojo y Amarillo ~ colores muy grande

A TULIP BULB ~ secret for Me contains !

  • Comment from author about the poem: Mi Padre (Spanish Wine Merchant) es Espanol y La Mia Madre Ingles ! I was born & educated in London but I spent many of my Holidays (and Holy Days) en Sevilla con Mis Abuelos. I have dual Nationality and the Bandera Espanola is as important to Spaniards as the Union Jack is to the British ! Red & Yellow is a lovely Colour Duo juat a Red - White - Blue is a lovely Colour Trio. Brian & I got married in Lockdown (March) so we had to Honeymoon in the lovely City of Cambridge (very academic) instead of Sevilla (very romantic) ! Brian has Welsh Roots but is *Hispanic Enough* for Mi Padre to say *SI SI* when Brian (being Un CabalIero Ingles) asked Him por *Mi Mano en Matrimonio* ! Amor a Todos ANGELA y BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™

        Good Sabbath Afternoon - Uncle Steve - Pleased you enjoyed my Meditation on Red / Yellow striped Tulips and the Spanish Flag. Spanish is one of the easiest Languages for Brits to learn and the Grammar is comprehensively very simple. Brian studied it @ School and bought a Spanish Dictionary and underlined in RED every word that was similar to English ! POEMA = Poem - DIA = Day - NOCHE = Night - OCHO = Eight - MANANA = Morning - MADRE = Mother - PICANTE = Piquant - GATO = Cat etc etc ! So before you start you know 100 Words ! He also has a Bilingual Bible (Spanish - English) which increases His vocabulary ! It was His fluency in Spanish that enabled Mi Padre to say SI SI (YES) to a GRINGO !

        Gracias por tu respuesta (response) a Mi Poema
        Bendiciones y Paz a Tu y Tu Perro Bonito (Lovely) FIDO
        Con Amor en el Spirito Santo ANGELA y BRIAN y GATO FUMADO !

        Great write - what I always find surprising is that so many don't know the difference between bulbs corms rhizomes and tubers.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          TThanks for your comment Uncle Mike - Yes indeed BULBS - CORMS - RHIZOMES & TUBERS are indeed Botanically Different but are often referred to collectively as BULBS. When I used the word CORM (V 1. Line 2) I used Poetic Licence because it rhymes with FORM ! I am aware that TULIPS are not CORMS but TRUE BULBS ! GINGER is an example of a TRUE CORM ! Your comment has given BRIAN an idea for a *Soil Science Sonnet* - Watch this SPACE !

          Blessings & Flowering Bulbs to You & Yours
          Love Angela - Brian & Smokey Cat
