Ode to a Tenacious Grower

Ode to a Tenacious Grower

keep growing

Here’s to the flowers who KEEP GROWING when the crowd says, “This is a comfortable height.”
Here’s to the ones who don’t need THE CAMOUFLAGE OF FITTING IN or the strength of numbers.
REACH FOR THE SUN, Little Ranunculus,
and may THE SHADE YOU CREATE for the wilting weary be GRACE, GRACE, GRACE.
