Jacaranda meets Bougainvillea on Grey Street, St Kilda.
Misty mauves and brilliant purples entangle
Southern cousins meet journeying across the Indian and Pacific oceans.
They thrive in this great South land,
Welcomed and proudly part of the street scene.
Their colours light up life for the stumbles and beggars,
The backpackers and construction workers,
Sacred Heart prayers and diners.
Jacaranda and Bougainvillea embrace and intertwine,
An Advent purple diversity.
