A Beautiful Flower Blooms

In the coldest room of the house
  during weeks of very little sun
Stuck in a pot of mud
a beautiful flower blooms.

It finds comfort in those things around it
  cozy, peaceful and content.
Perhaps not exactly what it wanted
still, a beautiful flower blooms.

At times parched
   and forgotten,
 warm Summer sun can no longer be felt
and winter laughs outside..
 yet, a beautiful flower blooms.

It worries not for what is to come
drinking in all that it can
living it's short life in splendor
that beautiful flower blooms.

blessings and thanks for visiting
