The Colour Purple.
I have always loved trees and have planted many. Often I have not been able to stay in one place long enough to see them mature. When hubby and I bought our forever home, one of the things I hoped for was to have a beautiful mature tree in the yard. My preference was for a poinciana tree or a jacaranda tree.
So imagine my delight when the home we purchased had not only a lovely jacaranda tree in its backyard but also one in the adjoining neighbour’s yard. Every year around this time we live in a beautiful purple haze. It is indeed a gift.
Royalty in Bloom: Poetry by Estelle D.© 2010
Canopy of purple, Royalty in bloom, Showering pastel petals, While beneath a springtime carpet settles, Dying to the earth, As new green leaf is given birth, Behold the Jacaranda! Robed in Royal splendour, Marvel at your station, In the order of creation Receive the gift. Royalty in Bloom!
