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
