What Does Growth Look Like?



leaves flaunt

their life

under the sun

that strokes

purple blossoms

into summer

as unseen roots

burrow their way down

in an effort to quench their thirst

good soil makes all the difference

when it comes to growth

like a mind feasting on truth

will transform a life

where there is health

an entire field will flaunt it’s clothing

like a model circling a runway

under a rumbling sky

that loves a mad display

of flowers

serenaded by rain

pounding against the earth

as fertilizer spikes

are pounded in

as a lesson that can only be learned

through pain

this is the picture scratched into the dirty soil

where beauty is born
