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



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?
