March 25, 2011, the morning marked
by the burst of purple Cortezas in bloom
challenging our creative potential
as the Grand Master teaches
with sublime skill, pale pastels or
vivid yellows, bright birds chirping
warbling, amongst almost leafless
uplifted branches, tropical Roble
praise their supreme creator
in approach of the Holy Week
then followed by the rains to nurture
the seeds in fertile soil, new generations
of flowering trees.
