fit for a queen

Lagerstroemia speciosa
Family: Lythraceae
Queens Crape Myrtle, Queens flower, Pride of India, Bungor Raya, Banaba
making its regal entrance
gracefully opening its petals
with color of royalty
a selfless step down from its throne
to make way for its descendant
a beauty truly fit for a queen

Crape Myrtle is one of my favorites. It reminds me of New Orleans where my family leaves. The color is magnificent.
