Whipped Cream Trees


Whipped Cream Trees

White-blossomed trees 
line the street
appearing overnight 
like a dream.

They look as if 
they've been festooned
with cotton lace, popcorn, 
or maybe...whipped cream.

Branches make canopies over the walk:
fragrant, delicate, and sweet.
A slight breeze stirs up a few white petals 
that float down like wishes,
drifting across the path at our feet.

  3. Beautiful photos, and I relate to the idea of "white petals
    that float down like wishes, drifting across the path at our feet."

  7. A lovely poem, Connie, for what looks like a beautiful street to drive down with the trees in full bloom. Hope these last for a few weeks.

  17. Such descriptive words of these gorgeous trees. Sometimes it looks like snow under these trees as the petals fall. I hope you are able to enjoy walks now that the weather has improved.
