Wildflower

PHOTO PROMPT © Anshu Bhojnagarwala

Wherever life plants you
Bloom with grace
It is okay to fall
But come back with an ace

Fix the environment
Enjoy the process of becoming
Let the seasons enjoy their course
Soon, the time will come for spring

Every flower is beautiful
Just bloom, don’t compete
Do whatever it takes to sustain
Surviving is no simple feat

There might not be enough space
If you should grow, you will
Work on your metamorphosis
Unlearn and up-skill

No one will help you grow
It is all up to you
Wildflower, you just spring up
Where no one expected you to

  1. Yay Sou. My thoughts last night revolved around the same thing. From being the wildflower to becoming it once again. Such a lovely take on the poem. May we all grow gloriously wherever we are. 💗

  7. That is an inspiring idea - to bloom wherever one can, without expecting help or support and it goes beautifully with the prompt too.
