Yellow Tulips (#AtoZChallenge)

This is my 9th attempt at the month-long blogging challenge, Blogging from A to Z. I’ve completed it 5 times so far. My theme this year is 7 Sentence Fiction, and the word I’m using for Y is Yellow.

Yellow Tulips

“He gave me a dozen red roses, Rashmi. Quite romantic, don’t you think?”

“But doesn’t he know you don’t like red roses, Raji?” Rashmi laughed, hearing her twin’s words.

“He does, of course, but that’s not the point. It’s our first Valentine’s Day!”

Rashmi looked away, a smile on her lips.

Her husband had given her four of her favorite yellow tulips, one for each year they had known and loved each other.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. To each his own! It’s funny how we find our own joy in somethings that are probably beyond someone else’s understanding!
