Redbud

Redbud blooms outside my front door.
 Red buds open into pink flowers 
Like cotton candy on dark sticks
 Waving in the sweet air, 
Attracting bees and 
Singing spring songs.
When leaves come on
They push the blossoms.
Which fall softly-
A pink ring of 
Melted strawberry ice cream
 Around the trunk on a green grass plate.
