DSC05316 shyness has no place

with this one

butter-colored trumpets

scream out to be seen

the bees and hummingbirds

hear and peck and flit

 

somewhere about the mid

19th century

the name was first recorded

in Trinidad

still today the islanders

gather in the savannah

sitting on the pink or yellow flowers

its soft and spongy wood

is used for floats        razor straps

even the inner soles of shoes

students

it is believed

fall in love

when the blossoms

litter the campus ground
