The Transition

Fragrant – Tuesday Photo Prompt


The gentle fragrance of the winter bloom of Acacia, lovely to see these Wattle trees signalling the coming end to winter and the arrival of the southern spring.


Rain moistened soil
wattle trees glorious
gestation of hope

  4. In our country Acacia is a tree but it has the same yellow flowers. It blooms every March. By the way, I loved the short poem.
