The Flower

The Flower

A Poem by Topaz

One tiny hard seed

hardly important

enough to notice

or to retrieve

 

Left to its

own devices

to grow or to die

through tribulation

 

Feels the heat

the fire

the pain

of it's tiny existence

 

Through the miracle

of hurt

the seed begins

to grow and shine

 

Still powerless

but still powerful

enough to conquer

the soil, the rocks and tragedy

 

Amazing little miracle

a leaf first

later, a gentle sprout

struggles against adversity

 

The sunshine

is all the encouragement

it needs

The smile of God

 

Empowered

the stem becomes

stronger and more powerful

roots dive deep into the fertile soil

 

The once insignificant seed

now transformed

into something powerful

something to be reckoned with

 

Pretty purple flowers

dark green foliage

large thorns that hurt

a weed, a food source, a nuisance

 

Never again to be disregarded

Strength, determination and defenses

a noxious weed?

or a pretty purple flower?
