Brilliant - shining
Purple and white
Can there be
A more magnificent sight?
You can see them blooming in abandoned lots, having survived long after the homes they were planted next to have vanished. I remember them growing across the street from my childhood home on the corner of a lot no one cared for.My father planted many in the backyard of our home….The lilacs now blooming in my backyard all trace their ancestry back to him.
You remind me, of years past, of happy times, of neighborhood friends, and Spring Festivals.
Little clenched fists of purple, waiting to burst forth
Tiny leaves of green unfold, proud to show their growth.Your smell so fresh and clean, so light…so free. Blessed with blossoms to numerous to count Love flows best when it blooms…………
It’s amazing to see how much beauty God puts into a single lilac with its breathtaking beauty and aroma.
