out of season

think of the gingko stem

sycamore  sprawl

losing  leaves    espalier

even  elegant foliage

bursting fragrant magnolia

all of the stature

incipient in quince

spiky clusters    adorn

cottonwood capsules

satin trunk alkalinity

voluptuous  pods

each  on  its  thorn

crimson habitat

germinate  flourish

the long haunting

hybrids  attain

out  of  season
