Patiently the blooms grow,
Stretching tall towards the sun,
The blue and yellow they will never know,
Their desire never won.
Still taller they reach, higher
And higher. They never cease,
Strength and determination to admire.
Their dreams they shall not release.
When cut down they are not deterred,
Be it weather, insect, beast or man,
Their roots are embedded, anchored,
Down deep in the soil they span
Drawing from the Earth. Their
Will to continue, come what may,
Is a beauty to behold and share.
Nature thrives in this way.
