Dream Petals


under a magnolia tree
where i stood
my past & future
laid at its roots
if only i could
plant dreams
i would
watch them bloom
i should
let petals fall on me
where i stood
under a magnolia tree

  2. Lovely photo, first of all. And yes, if we could plant dreams it would be a wonderful thing. Then as they grew we could pluck the ones we wanted. We would have so many choices... Smiles.

  3. Seeing nature bloom in an urban landscape gives us one small hope that all will turn out well in the end, despite our apparent determination to destroy the earth.

  9. At first glance, I thought I'm seeing Cherry blossoms, but oh.. Magnolias are wonderful too. And yes, we could plant dreams, not literally though, but we certain could with the right combination of passion, perseverance, patience & trust dreams would surely bloom as beautifully & wonderfully as the Magnolia Tree. Our parents have planted their dreams & yes it is us---the fruit of their labor & hopes, blooming brightly today. Smiles. Lovely share today, Loredana. Thank you!

  19. Loredana,

    I can relate to the notion of a tree which can capture one's life, past and present. I reflect about these things with regard to my visits back to Belfast and The Botanical Gardens..
