Miraculous Flower

Written by Millie Jenny C.

Fragile flower

Susceptible to so much . . .

Effected by every breeze that blows

Awkwardly balanced on top

Of a less than pencil-thin stem

Your multi-layered

Splash . . .of color

Jumping out at me.

The rain pours . . . Down in torrents.

You are bent down. . .

Almost to the ground.

Miraculously . . .

The downpour halts . . .

With barely a second to spare.

You do not break . . .

You inched . . .so very. . . slowly upward again

As you dry. . .

You drink-in luxuriously the essential

Nutrients in the raindrops. . .

The sun

Burst back onto the scene. . .

Now with the magical mixture of

Heat and moisture. . .

Your growth continues.
