Dutch Tulips....

Dutch tulips
I would, if I could
buy for you

They blossom
like my beating heart - 
You in sight

Take my heart -
together we shall
reap a bed

Of tulips -  
vibrant valley of
our true love....

This haiku is inspired by the historical occurrence in 17th century Holland when tulip prices rose very high and tulips are said to have become the world's most coveted flower. In this haiku, a lover woos his beloved stating he is not rich enough to buy tulips but assures her that his love is true.
