Clematis

A host of green buds

Potential beauty cocooned

Heralding summer

Time is close for bursting forth

Petals of white purity

For Tuesday Tanka challenge – a flower that has meaning to me is my clematis – when it’s ripe with buds it tells me summer is not far away.

  3. Lovely, Laura. I loved this line, “Potential beauty cocooned.” The buds are so much like a cocoon, but I wouldn’t have thought of that word. Perfect. 🙂

  4. When we lived in Montana, I grew a deep burgundy-colored clematis. I looked forward to those blooms every year. This is beautiful and white!
