Carpe Diem #1281 Suzuran (Lilly of the Valley)

Suzuran (Lilly of the Valley), is again here for your inspiration.

Chèvrefeuille wrote this is the first tanka I ever wrote. I love to share that tanka here again here:

Lilies of the valley
their sweet perfume makes me drowsy
hot summer night
between silken sheets her warmth
honeysuckle coolness

I learned something new today Suzuran is Japanese for Lily of the Valley, thanks, to Kristjaan –  now my Tanka Poem

a symbol of spring
the lily of the valley
the national flower of Finland
true sweetness and purity
showers my garden with pure love

      • Yes something like that, but thanks for the comment, there will be other readers thinking the same as you.
        As for the weather, it’s starting to feel like spring, rain coming in again and it’s Labour weekend in NZ, a three-day weekend, looking forward to that.
        Cairns, you mean you don’t have much rain, well I will share some of ours with you, we have already had our yearly rainfall back in September.
        Have a nice weekend.
