Fragile

Fragile flower being blown by the wind
To and fro, to and fro

Petals ruffling in the breeze –
Will they stay or will they go?

Slender stem swaying this way and that
Yet tightly gripped by the ground

Hold on tight – the storm can’t last
The sun will soon come out

Droplets of rain cascade thick and fast
But it cleanses you as it flows

Into the earth to nourish your roots
So that you can continue to grow
