Some plants must be coaxed
Carefully into blooming
You are such a plant

When this plant blooms
I hold rituals in my heart
Celebrating life

Nothing can evoke
More of life’s fragility
Than that rare blossom

[Writing prompt — blooming — provided by chordatesrock.  You can always leave an ask on my tumblr of a word or short phrase and I will try to eventually respond with writing. I try for poetry but fiction or nonfiction may happen as well.]
