The Month of the Jacarandas

P1200186 picasa signed

The Jacaranda blue, a heavenly hue
Graces the landscape in November
Sometimes already in late October
As is the case this year
As it was the case
Many years ago
I remember

Birds are busy nesting in the trees
Caring for their balls of fluff
Soon they’ll be proudly showing off
Their noisy fledglings
Squeaking, screeching
On the railing of
My balcony

Soon I’ll have the pleasure to share
In this wonder of nature, watching the parent
Nurture the scrawny, squawking offspring
How good it is to witness this
So close at hand – Oz indeed
Is a wondrous
