Flower - a poem - nature poem

Sun’s warmth
Parts the petals
Flower of life
Slowly opening
To the beat
Of earth’s pulse

Smell the fragrance
Flower releases
pollinators arrive
Moved by hunger
Enter flower gently
taste the sweet nectar

Feel the tremor
In the petals
Movement ruffled
Waters of life
Gush forth
Filling the cup

Waters ebb
Tremors gently cease
Petals relax
Flower closes
Pulls itself shut
Mission accomplished
