By Adina Tarry

In full bloom,
Bunches of elongated bells, hang so thick…
Hiding the leafy fresh green,
Under petals of butterfly wing, deprived of scent,
Instead, sending off vibrant particles of colour dust,
Matte lavender mist of odourless fragrance …

Just a few days of grace,
To show this fragile splendour,
Before being blown away by the gentlest of breeze…

Yet their delicate and ephemeral beauty,
Naturally carries their shadow,
Through the times when they are not,
Into the new times, when…
they will become again,
Magnificent Jacaranda trees.
