A Rain of Magnolia Blossoms




Princess Haiku walked in a rain of magnolia blossoms even though the day was just a dream. This fragrance is so real, she thought I can't have imagined this Spring.

This looks just like my garden right now! Last week I was admiring my gloriously blooming magnolia tree (it seems to bloom earlier every year!), but a couple of really stormy days later... desolation reigns....

I like the image of a storm of magnolia petals. The contrast of wild, surging winds and the delicacy of temporal blooms. This contrast of natural energy is perplexing at times. The blooms after the storm on the ground...And yet it continues. Buds return the following year, broken hearts mend, one footstep will follow another. What is required here is a haiku to express feeling this more perfectly.

Thank you She Who flies, for stopping to visit and leaving a poetic image.

I wish that flowers, and trees could be in bloom all year. I wish some of the trees were in fall orange, and red just as long.
