How the Flowers leave the Tree

Purple flowers blooming

In the Jacaranda trees 

Tell me Spring is over

It feels like Summer here

Or it does today 

This year my youngest is leaving 


In just 5 days to be exact

And I’m not ready

Still selfish

Not emotionally detached

But what is the point of blooming

If I hold on too tight

The trees display reminds me

We can’t have it any other way

After all

It’s how the flower leaves the tree

And the seasons move along

The last few weeks of school are so emotional both for parents and kids – one minute high – the next low – a bit of a trip. Pat is my baby – now he is set to fly and I’m excited for him but a little melancholy also – love and best wishes for all those school leavers and parents out there at this time x
