Petals In The Wind

Standard

Out in my backyard today

Is a swirling raucous wind

Flowering Salmon Quince

So those petals, young and blossoming

Become suddenly strewn in the spin

Magnolia Soulangeana Blossoms

I’m so glad I caught images yesterday

For today, they are gone from sight

Resting Mourning Cloak Butterfly

As the storm will soon come thundering

Unleashing with all it’s might

Yellow Acacia In Bloom

Each West Winter is bound to repeat this pattern

Yet the flowers return here anew

Brightening up my landscape

Coloring my every view
