Spring releases the Jacaranda from obscurity.
This is a photograph of a Jacaranda:   profound declaration of Spring.

THE JACARANDA:  a winsome beauty

Soft violet blossoms
grace a prosaic tree;
trunk, branches awesome
are expansive and free ~

grace a prosaic tree,
obscured beauty kept
silent, no revelry,
to loudness inept ~

trunk, branches awesome,
fern-like leaves surrounding
fair winsome blossoms ~
birds, beauty, resounding

are expansive and free
secreted in green ~
profound purple decree:
subtle crowning preen.


Written in the Quadrilew form of quatrain poem with an abab rhyming scheme, repeating lines and an alternating syllable structure (verse 1--5,6,5,6; verse 2--6,5,6,5; verse 3--5,6,5,6; verse 4--6,5,6,5).
