Wisteria Frenzy

Vines veer skyward

spiraling on lattice walls

curling, climbing aloft

Tendrils twist toward sunlight

dancing counterclockwise

at spring’s frantic pace

Blossoms burst and sway

flutter in morning breeze

perfuming garden air

Purple pulses outward

a hundred petaled fingers

wave enchanted welcomes

Multi mini blues

lavender lilac and mauves

hum rhapsodies in bloom

Spring sings with wisteria’s

floral chorus

clamoring for celebration
