Be grateful for the people who make you happy . . .
they are the loving gardeners who make your life blossom.
~ Marcel Proust ~
Bougainvillea, such a delicious name,
Magnificent in morning, brilliant in mid-day,
Effervescent and stunning in evening’s golden hour.
Your thorns attack me but your blossoms make me happy.
Casting shadows under the silvery moonlight,
Your loveliness makes me linger in my garden
As I take in your color and repeat your name.
Bougainvillea. Bougainvillea. Bougainvillea.
