Kapok leaves

Spring in Shenzhen seems to come earlier than in other cities. As soon as the cold weather of spring festival passed, kapok spitting flower stamens could not wait to bloom with the temperature rising. Kapok leaves fall in spring, and tired and old yellow leaves slowly fall in the spring breeze, which is quite similar to the scenery in autumn in the north. It is amazing that there are huge red flowers on the bare branches! At first, I knew kapok, a flower tree, from Shu Ting’s poem “To Oak” two or ten years ago. If we only understand it literally, it is hard to imagine that kapok flowers will be this attractive red. It is like experiencing the tolerance, implication and gestation of a winter, and showing its beauty and enthusiasm in spring. I was once excited to know kapok trees, because kapok always reminds me of the cotton trees in my hometown. When the flowers bloom, the white and soft cotton clusters look like a gentle woman, there is always an impulse to touch and comfort it. When I first came to Shenzhen, I heard that there were kapok trees here, so I wanted to know them to compare with kapok trees in my impression, but there was always no chance. Until my husband took us to the center of this city three years ago, there was a bustling street downstairs, and the kapok trees that my heart yearned for were planted on both sides of the street. When Kapok is blooming, I always like to stand on the balcony and look at the kapok trees downstairs for a long time. The blooming flowers, in the implicit sunshine of spring, are so presumptuous, so wild, so impressive! Unfortunately, the flowering period of Kapok is not long. Although there are kapok on both sides of the street, the flowering period is different at the same time. Trees without shelter around the sunshine will show off its beauty without shyness and lead other branches to open. Every day when I pass under this tree, I always look up at the moving scenery above. When the flower finished its beautiful bloom and fell from the tree one by one, I was surprised at first when I saw many passers-by picking it up one after another. Later I heard that the flower was actually edible, so I was not surprised. Without the bloom of flowers, although there is no scenery, the green spring naturally gives people a sense of satisfaction in full of spring. Until one day when I passed under the tree, white balls like cotton floated in front of me and suddenly woke up. This was kapok. So I looked up to the tree and saw a large area of green leaves mixed with several small white cotton balls, swaying in the dazzling sunshine wind, blowing through the wind, just waddled down. Suddenly I realized why it was called kapok, which was so similar to the cotton in my impression. I just don’t know how it turns such red flowers into snow-white cotton balls, because the tree species are relatively tall, although it is not easy to see clearly through the trees every day. Maybe the cotton ball is the fruit it bears. A closer look shows that there are several black particles the size of Sesame in the small cotton ball, which are like cotton seeds. It’s just that its dazzling flowers cover its original appearance. However, I still like the feeling of its blooming flowers, which are so fresh, so bright and so unforgettable!
