My favorite COLOR.
There is even a special name for this shade of purple.
Perhaps it has to do with the time of the year,
or maybe it's just the exact right name for this color.
Do you know what it is?
The Jacaranda (ha ca ráhn da) in all it's glory
can make you hit the brakes and cause a rear-end collision.
Or trip over a cobblestone and fall flat on your face.
Be advised, it's a very dangerous tree!
It astonishes and surprises the unsuspecting
as they round a bend in the road.
It blends in well with the landscape.
It can even inspire graffiti!
It fills the senses with it's breathtaking color.
It makes an agreeable neighbor too.
It's spent petals carpet the cobblestones.
