First Wisteria

I saw my first wisteria Monday
at 9 a.m., in 46 degrees.
I shot a picture walking, on my way
to stock my pantry with some groceries.
The purple blossoms formed a scant array
but promised spring in Berkeley more than bees.
My own wisteria’s a west facade,
and needs more time to flower in my yard.

(Ottava Rima)
