Artist's Description

This photo is my first try with Photoshop. I changed my old picture about African tulip tree, which was made in Hawaii.

Spathodea campanulata is a robust tree, growing to a height of 20 meters, with a dense, dark, shining, green crown. Leaves are pinnately compound, 20 to 25 centimeters long, divided into 5 to 8 pairs of leaflets. Leaflets are elliptic-oblong, 7.5 to 11 centimeters long, and 3.5 to 7 centimeters wide, with a pointed tip, and several glands along the midrib near the base. Flowers are large, bell-shaped, up to 10 centimeters long and 5 centimeters wide, borne in terminal, erect inflorescences (racemes), with a peculiar smell. Calyx is spathe-lke, strongly curved, brownish, velvety-smooth, and split nearly to the base on one side. Corolla is curved, the tube being narrow below, but strongly inflated and 5-lobed above, scarlet or crimson red, with yellow, frilled edges. Pods are firm, thick, dark-brown, and 15 to 20 centimeters long. Seed is about 2.5 centimeters wide, with a broad, silvery white, transparent wing.

Hopeless Love

How hopeless is this love
But never been more hopefully
No one knows where river will end
With how big scandal or banality

Wounds have with sharp axe done
Oo God be for us, defend us
Defend pure love, value
Between two fires shade

The light is shine of love
We melt away blessed wreck
We now only naked in shame
In desert like moulting ostrich

We indeed ramble merely
If we would serene
Trees swing, snowing weak
Shaes are absorbed into ground

This does not concern us
This tulip tree tremble
Sun is shining, dream but insane
Boat landing shore of shame
