Outside my window
brassy bougainvillea blooms—
I dream in scarlet.

  22. Beautiful red flower…
    Thank you for dropped by and leaving me a nice comment at my blog. I’m late for my Ruby Tuesday’s round, hope you had a great day…

    Lots of luv,

  23. Beautiful color. I adore the bougainvillea growing all over my neighborhood in a riot of colors (that one is my favorite) but when I did my (rooftop) garden years ago I let the gardener persuade me that my neighbors would hate me if I put any on my patio, since all those leaves and petals would constantly end up on the balconies below. I miss it though.

    PS I love the haiku about the ball pit that you left on my blog, what a sweet gift.
