“We all have a tree inside us. Finding it is just a matter of time.” ― Sahar Delijani
Some beautiful and long-lasting trees bear purple flowers each spring. Flowering cherries and redbuds are harbingers of spring, with early blooms. Others, such as the jacaranda, bloom later in the season but provide color for one to two months.
A Jacaranda tree stands tall, and sways as if to say,
Look! At this magnificence, I’m wearing blue today.
forgive the way I shout aloud, my lack of modesty
but nowhere in this troubled world is finery like me.
Light rays slide between each leaf, to settle on the tips
to lightly kiss your face with a hundred million tiny lips.
You only have to lift your eyes to greet the filtered sun
a sight I guarantee will warm the heart of everyone.
~ Ann Beard
