If
You could have been here
When the redbud blooms
And the maples began to leaf

We could have shared
The aesthetics
Of azaleas in spring, whether wild or tame
At the time when only buds pop upon the ginkgo trees

Oh! 

How delightful would have been summers

Sharing

Fuchsia bougainvillea's beautiful color 

But 

You chose to take your life
And I never got to know you 

Is there fuchsia bougainvillea in heaven?

Beautiful imagery! You have taken a topic that is difficult to manage and given it color and texture. I love this poem Sara and after reading it several times I now hunger for more! Thanks so very much.

This is so beautiful, Sara. I own one and it's planted in the back of the house I against the master bedroom and it is beautiful , but also very prickly.. I have to trim it back because it scrapes the window and it just gets out of control.. Good luck in the contest.

Eve, I had one in a hanging basket one year but winters here are not warm enough every year for them to survive. I have to store them inside and there isn't enough room and enough light for plants inside the house. I did enjoy its beauty that year. Thanks for dropping by. Sara

Nette, Thank you for dropping by. Yes, it could have been nice for my biological mother to have had a longer life. Your comments are uplifting. Sara

WoW! So much emotion. So much longing in so few words. Speaking of your love for the beautiful flowers and how you wish you could have shared them with your loved one. But this person took his/her own life and brought so much pain and regret plus confusion. WHY! Great job here. Excellent. God Bless and I hope this isn't a true story. God Bless, JB
