Blue-Green Memories
by Alice B. Clagett

In June, the jacaranda tree
      steals heaven’s blue,
      and drops it at our feet

And hearts turn tenderly
      to that first Spring – when,
through starlit depths of space and time
we touched down, joyful, in this place –

And here we stand,
       between this dream, and that,
       of bliss unending,

taunted by a jacaranda tree
to walk once more on heaven.

--a gift of love,
   on the way to Lake Isabella, California
