The Genus of azalea

The genus of azalea

Late march
To early april
azaleas bloom in their full glory

From the Pacific
To the Atlantic
10.000 cultivars are propagated

In Chinese culture
The sixiang shu
Tu Fu’s “thinking of home bush”

Both leaves
And nectar
Are Highly toxic

And yet inspiration to many
In poetry and festivals

Its beauty
And fragrance
Sublimed by flashing colors

Family to the Rododendrons
Magnificent bush
In the shade of the forest line

“My Love for you grows as you grow.
I long for your wonders to be shared.
I listen to your words compassionate:
“Take care of Yourself for Me.”
 
Shall we have a cup of tea?
Sharing in stories long ago?”

Tu Fu –

Tu Fu (Du Fu), the great Chinese poet,
the “Poet-Historian”
the “Poet-Sage”
