Lily of the Valley

delicate perfume
of fatal pale perfection
silent carillon

My response to Carpe Diem #1482 Lily of the Valley

Today’s image for our inspiration is of a vase of lilies-of-the-valley, which were my grandmother’s favourite flowers and perfume. They are also highly poisonous. Chèvrefeuille has shared a tanka from 2015 which encouraged me to rewrite one of mine from 2017 as a haiku.
