Magnolia

Magnolia in the courtyard in March.
At first, dauntless to a world
not from free from
winter’s stone.
The graceful, gray mossy apendages,
are embraced with silky purple
veined blossoms,
caressed by the sun,
yet quiver in the abrasive wintry wind
and gradually petels,
delicate as moth wings
fragile against unremitting
elements fall layer
upon decomposing layer
until they melt
away with rain

by Nicoletta Rose Carlone
