jacaranda blooms
carpeting May city streets
purple confetti

—Deborah P. Kolodji

Deborah writes: There are jacaranda trees on the sidewalk outside of the church where my sister got married one May. I will always see her standing there surrounded by the purple blooms as if they were thrown at the couple like rice is thrown after a wedding.
