WISTERIA at Gilla's home
- Joy Krauthammer

This season
I was too late for the wisteria at Hare's home.
I was too early for the wisteria at Lake Balboa.
I saw buds on the trellises over looking the lake.
I saw a little left over white wisteria at Karen's home.
I'm glad I witnessed Gilla's beautiful purple wisteria.
To me, wisteria is similar to lilacs which I used to grow, 
growing up in NY.

Wisteria delights my eyes and heart.
