Sweet Mimosa

~To hold as 't were, the mirror up to nature…

How sweet the Mimosa’s aromatic lure  
   with lumbering roots stretching and digging deep.
      Leaning this way, that way as bodies mature
         soaking up the rain, letting pure elements seep.
            Spindly extensions that extrude really wide  
               draping rich earth bed where fallen blossoms dried.
                  Mimosa’s budding flower a sweet perfume
                     captivates senses with each coral red bloom.

    What a lovely poem, Caryl! We have mimosas growing wild here and those coral, feathery flowers are a delight. They are a bit spindly and the roots do go quite deep. Great description and I wish you success in the contest. Love, Carolyn
