Bradford Pear

Bradford Pear

A snowfall of white petals
collect in my hair.
A hot south wind
strips blossoms bare.
The flowering pear
bends, sways, whips.

Grey towers build
in the late March sky
spring stalls
in the oncoming storm:
the sudden chill.

c. Darlene Moore Berg

This spring is a little behind as the pears are just now in full glory this second week of April but a cold front is coming!
