Misty veil lifts
revealing early morning sunrise.
Spring buds engorged with life
begin to show wonder held within,
mystically unfolding natures beauty.
A crop of delicate colour,
gentle scents mingle in the air,
as tiny heads gently nod approval
to the bold, majestic crowns that stand
head and shoulders above them.
Respectfully each stands their ground
aware of passion needed
to give their very best,
in short time of show before
shrivelling in death.
To nourish and nurture
the core of itself or the ground
to which it seeds itself
by winds, rains or insects,
giving wake to stronger fellowship next year.
