on a whim, I turned left
to walk beneath the magnolia

spilling pink-hinted petals
into a differently scented morning

than if I’d just
gone straight ahead

  1. loved this Sarah, it immediately brought to mind a massive flowering tree I remember vividly from South Caroline, magnolia, dogwood, cottonwood, I do not know, a tree with white flowers LOL.
