Crepe myrtle




In winter...

...limbs like human bones,

ridged and smooth,

and reaching.

Smooth bark as human skin,

muscled and defined

in its form

as shapes beneath the surface.


In summer...

...Pink and deep lilac

and beauty in abundance.

Branches burgeoning

with a wealth of riches.

Gloriously ubiquitous

in front yards and back.
