A slender goblet wreathed in flame

It’s April! Which means Poetry Month. I hope you enjoy the poems and matching images ☺️
Tulip by William Jay Smith

A slender goblet wreathed in flame,
From Istanbul the flower came
And brought its beauty, and its name.
Now as I lift it up, that fire
Sweeps on from dome to golden spire
Until the East is all aflame:

By curving petals held entire
In cup of ceremonial fire,
Magnificence within a frame.
I'm a poetry Philistine. When there's a poem in a novel I always skip it. I shall enjoy your photos and skim the poems (/
To prove I skimmed this one, I didn't know tulips were from Turkey!

You set yourself a fine challenge here and I am sure it will bring you lots of creativity and inspiration. Magnificence within a frame is what you have indeed captured.
