Life is a Flower

It begins deep under the earth
with the warm soil & God calling it forth
when it's time to bloom

Stretching up toward the fresh air
and sunlight that is needed for growth

Rains come down & give it what it needs
at just the right time
Heavy drops weighing it down sits
delicately on its delicate petals

Winds challenge it, forcing it to brace
itself, but also teaching it to bend &
sway and stand its ground

It grows strong and mighty, showing off
its beauty with confidence
Nature comes to it and takes what it needs
to keep the life-cycle going

Pruning, tweaking, keeping bad weeds away
Encouraging maximum growth with love & care
Until its season is done
And it returns to the ground from which it came

Life is a flower of which love is the honey
