Sometimes, you just have to look at things with humor.  I first wrote a serious poem about this tulip.  Then I wrote a fun poem about the same tulip.  Enjoy life, one tulip, at a time!

One lone tulip …
In a rock garden
of brown and green.
Though alone,
Her brilliant stance
Calls me to stop,
and look again.
