30 Words :: While they last...

They don't last, 
these harbingers of sun-drenched days.
Bursting forth like so many exploding violet-hued fireworks, 
instantly commanding attention.
Inhale deeply 
the heady scent 
that won't return 
until 
next 
year.

Thank you to my friend, Miss Laura, for the sweet-smelling surprise on my desk on Wednesday morning! She is known as the 'lilac thief' in our area, and I am glad that she shares her spoils with me! ;-)

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
The premise of 30 Words Thursdays is simple...
Take an image (preferably one you shot, or have permission to use).
Write 30 Words about it. No more. No less.

Post it each Thursday.

Add your link to the InLinkz on my 30 Words Thursday post.
 
(InLinkz code will be open for one week.) 
Enjoy seeing the verse and vision others have captured by visiting them and leaving a comment.

What a nice surprise! So many of my favorite flowers seem to be short lived... we totally missed the blooms on our crab apple tree while we were on vacation.

My favorites are lilacs and lilies of the valley. They are so lovely and smell so wonderful. But they last such a short time! It's nice to enjoy them while we can.
