National Poetry Month; pear trees in bloom

spring trees

up and down the street
ornamental pear trees in bloom
over hopscotch game

...-Andromeda Jazmon

We were talking in the faculty room about how early the trees have jumped into bloom. Each person had a story about a street in their neighborhood that is lined with ornamental pears. One day they were sleepy brown sticks; the next day - whoosh! - a cloud of fragrant blossoms. I had a vision of  some developer's dream of suburban America.
