The Lilac Tree

By Marguerite Fitzpatrick, OR © mfwr23@gmail.com

 

I remember the lilac tree

that affectionately caressed

the old worn garage

and its gray-splintered sides

 

Perfumed fragrances wafted

and permeated the air,

my space and surroundings

while sending smiles to the

hollyhocks and red velvet roses

 

Bountiful bunches of blossoms

danced and frolicked

in the warm summer breezes…

gently leaning their heads,

bowing to the soft, brown earth

while sending sweet scents of summer

 

As I stood on my tiptoes

and pressed my face closely to

these clusters of lavender charms,

wind chimes from the weathered house

next door

rang in a melodious concerto

and perfect harmony

with the dancing lilacs

 

In the early evening hours,

these bounteous blooms

nodded their approval of this

summer symphony of sweetness,

stilling themselves in silence

and in resting repose;

waiting for another day,

another dance...

sprinkling lavender sweetness

in my world
