born into this world,

pure and true,

fearlessly, effortlessly,

natures clear intention,

transcending dark warm depths

emerging into a first glimpse of light,

unknowingly exiting safety

entering an environment unknown,

petals bravely unfold a

delicate offering to a new world

the warmth of the sun,

a cool dark dewy night,

simply being until

plucked it from its stem,

for momentary pleasure,

perhaps a gift for another,

timeless infinity

perfected by nature,

disrupted in an instant,

altering natures

time tested,

perfect course,

pedals begin to fall,

colors fade,


withering blindly,

innocent no more.
