The Dogwood Tree
Through the dark green curtains
The snowbright dogwood floats
As a cloud of butterflies
Above the damp sunlit slope.

there are so many flowering trees in the spring. The Redbud is pretty with it's lovely purple flowers.
and the Bradford Pear certainly makes a wonderful statement as it lines the streets.
No one can deny the beauty of the Weeping Cherry as it majestically sweeps over the landscape.
Yes,there are so many beautiful flowering trees in the spring, but I think my favorite is the Dogwood.
The Dogwood evokes such wonderful memories for me. Memories of my grandmother sitting in her favorite chair, as the warm spring breezes ruffled the curtains through the open windows, and a Dogwood bloomed just outside.
The Dogwood is a humble tree.
but I think it must feel mighty as it reaches for the sky.
That's what I am doing today. Reaching for the sky.
