Bougainvillea

Written by: Sara Kendrick

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?
