A lovely contrast between trees
A lovely contrast between trees

...by Barbara Ruby

"Dogwoods"

Amidst dark evergreen trees,
blossoms of purest white.


Regal, revered, sacred,
dogwood’s a glorious sight.


Pristine, lovely, since ancient times,
unmatched beauty on spring hillsides.
 
Barbara Ruby is a long time Puyallup resident whose poems have appeared frequently in Sharing Stories and Northwest Prime Times Poetry Corner.
