Jacaranda trees at night

The purple petals darken in the gloaming;-
In their flowered elegance, belles' dresses,
Fall in a slowly darkling Summer night;-
To the fecund loamy softness of the earth;
Where the purpleness dissolves into the air;-
And creatures stir.

Soft velvet carpet, clear Summer skies;-
Stars circle above, in the black eternal vault,
Mysterious. A full moon shimmy-shines,
It's radiant silver, to shower the trees.

Sparkle stars, hours pass, soft dawn encroaches;-
Diffuse flower fragrance kisses the sunrise;
Crystal dew drops refracting tiny rainbows;
And soft mist, from the ladies' purple dresses.

While reading this beautiful inspired poem, you laid me down to rest and let my eyes reach the sky on the amazing summer night. The beauty of the flowers, the moment, to be awakened later by the humid grounds, interceded with the sun's majestic rays. Loved your imagery here, quite a delight. SM

Thank you, your comments are appreciated, as always.......

Makes you feel like the flowers come to life in a beautiful play, and exquisite purple fairies float softly around you as you stand barefoot under the tree.
