Jacaranda Whimsy
by Megan Webster

    I park my red Toyota
    under the jacaranda
    find a lavender carpet
    lilac heaven
    ethereal fragrance.

    I return two hours later
    find the tree has dropped
    half its crop
    created a jacaranda car
    in bluebell bonnet
    violet jacket.

    I stare wide eyed
    at this creation
    sniff___ smile___spring
    inside
    then fly away
    in my new blue Toyota.
