Haikai Challenge #134: Easter Lily

playtime lilies

Among the crocus,
A rainbow Easter lily
Rises this morning.
Hummingbirds and butterflies
Somersault, waiting their turns.

Frank J. Tassone is the host of Haikai Challenge.  Frank says:
Write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the Easter Lily.
