Jacaranda Resurrection

Cool pink soothing the sky at dusk ~
like Pepto Bismol soothes hot chili peppers
~ the aftermath of a sizzling Mexican fiesta, bringing a sense of relief
to the jangled nerves of commuters ~ who watch the sky.

Golden blooms of Palo Verde
intermingled with lilac blossoms of Jacaranda
represent the resurrection
of nature’s life cycle.

The weary traveler gazing upon
this soothing sky and optimistic landscape
feels a sense of relief ~ cooling jarred nerves
like Pepto Bismol soothes hot chili peppers.
