Fire tree in bloom

Fire tree  (Deloix regia) in bloom, UST Manila 

Like cherry in the tropics bloom,
confetti in summer thrill;
lovers step on the petals strewn
dancing with the breezy chill.

Atis - Star Apple

Dr Abe V Rotor

                                              Atis (Anona squamosa)
It's a fruit you can't eat without pulping each seed,
      tongue and palate passing through first,
with lips gleaning each chamber the sweet flesh hid
      then like blowgun each seed dispersed.
