Magnolia stellata

Magnolia stellata near fully blown open
released from fallen fuzzy sepals
blossoms fluttering like moths
Star magnolia another name
Delight in white primitive multi corolla
tenderly painted fine thin mauve line
within the middle of every succulent petal
a token of peace a gift of hope
into this garden transplanted on a slope
more than two decades ago now
a dwarf variety lovely dear friend.
