Elastic in Nature

magnolia bloom april 21

The tree stretches its limbs

and produces a beautiful bloom

calling to everyone

that it has a room

 

The bloom is elastic

sometimes opening only for a day

giving the bees a feast

nourishing their mission this way

 

The bloom turns to a flower

a remarkable piece of art

beautiful in its formation

right from the start

 

The flower puts on

a colorful show

an audience of many

passing it as they go

 

The time has come

the flower takes a bow

the limb retracts

using all the elastic allowed

 

Nature has a way

reminding us of beauty within

spreading out joy

without becoming to thin
