I wade in a snow of fallen blossoms
Under the miracle of trees,
Shaded by a canopy of umbrella leaves
Large as my head,
Perfectly curved,
Velvet fuzz on their backs.

Every molecule
Of this Catalpa tree
Is a wonder.
Each frothy white bloom
Delicately spiced
With violet
In its snowy maw.

I like trees, what can I say? A Catalpa is a particularly beautiful tree.

I loved all the imagery you used to describe the tree. You painted an almost magical picture in my mind, and "delicately spiced" was a perfect description. Thanks so much for sharing. :)
