My niece sits
near a Palo Verde tree
blooming in my parents’ backyard.
Considered “dirty trees” because
of the blanket of blooms they leave behind…
all images mine
Now that’s what I call beauty in imperfection!
I found the sunshiny Arizona flowering trees
cheerfully vibrant, not unlike my niece Sofia.

Sofia of the vibrant red hair
who loves pettiskirts,

all things pink,
and cuddly sweet.
Soaking up the precious rays?
Feelin’ hot pink sunshine?
What’s blooming near you?
Peace to you right where you are.
