Small Splendor

Updated on April 3, 2013

Tiny green bud springs forth from fertile brown earth.

The first bloom of life will be loved and nourished by nature

Kissed by the sunlight

Watered by tears from the sky

Nature will love this tiny green bud

She will coax it from a brown crib until it is bud no more

Overnight the bud becomes stem

The stem gives birth to flower

One flower soon gives way to splendor

A garden of rich, radiant hues

To live and touch the soul with beauty

Tiny green bud .

      Voted up and beautiful. Just delightful and here we are today under a ton of snow. Sigh I'm already longing for spring.

      Here it's summer and I found some beans I 'd forgotten to plant. Thought it was too late in the season but stuck them in anyway and they're all coming up. What a delight!
