Carpe Diem Special #163 Lolly’s fifth a peony bush (tanka)

a peony bush
heavy with flowers …
trying to pick
from a long list of names
for the full spring moon

pink flowers bloom
between green dewy leaves
a double peony

a welcoming sight
pink roses in front of house
as the sun shines
take time to smell the roses
sweet spring, enjoy life’s offer
