Beauty Trapped within Lavender Seeds by AMOS

AMOS | May 5th, 2023 | poetry | No Comments


lavender seeds
so tiny like black ants
but grow so huge like elephants
to meet nature admirers’ needs

lavender seed
so dark coated
with inner beauty loaded
waiting for sun’s ears to heed

though buried under manure
their heads shoot up to greet
sun’s warm hands to feel newer
and stand upright on their tender feet

they bud in their youthful stage
colourful petals smile at passing bees
purple flowers adorned in beauty with age
putting to shame neighbouring trees

then comes trading florists
holding the flower baskets
to pick bundles for tourists
and sell them in the market
