Purple Trees

Last night
at the Urban Spree
Santiago, lived in Mexico,
told me about the Jacarnadá trees
and their purple blossom.
He said they were delightful
beautiful to see.

I told him
it may not be exactly the same
but when the night covers
and the lights come on
the trees in the garden we were sat
turned purple.

His first gesture
presumed a tongue-in-cheek
but it wasn’t long
before night covered
he himself admitted
it was close to home.
