Almond Flowers

“And on the lampstand were four cups shaped like
  almond flowers with buds and blossoms.” ( Exodus 37:21 )

Even tamarind trees
have significant blossoms,

but not dusty almond trees
on roadside in my town.

The pale-pinched flowers
like viscous milky secretion,

are white dusts 
that carpet footpaths,

cling to shoes. The flowers,
were they buds at any time?
