    That's cool, Georgia. I hate to say that the lollipop shape is a distinguishing feature of plum trees! How does it look with the second and third lines combined on a single line. And maybe Spring alone as is, but less centred?
    And if I like that, may we use it on the festival pages (website, Instagram)?

    Could we just change « cherries » to plums?

    i will play with it to make the shape of the gorgeous trees on the plaza at foot passenger ticket area at Horseshoe Bay (west Van) —- I forget name of trees

    Brian Bilston, person who wrote the poem that inspired this thread, has written a variation entitled '‘The Problem of Writing Poems in the Shape of Deciduous Trees’.
    It's not on his website yet, so here is a link to it on Facebook. It's timely.
