Lilacs

.

It takes a long time to grow

a lilac tree. It has to be in

full sun, fed, watched.

.

Leaves are the source

of a lilac's power. Birds 

swing by, wonder why there

is no place to land, and

leave.

.

It takes patience to wait

for white blooms three years

later. Expecting purple,

someone labeled it wrong.

They don't last long. The

blossoms open fast, die fast.

After several hours in a vase,

they wilt. Lilacs.
