Cee’s fun Flower of the Day prompt challenges us all to see the beauty on nature. My post today takes this a step further in showing the cycle of life in a day lily. They are called day lilies as their bloom last only a day to a day in a half but the life cycle of that bloom is well over a week if not two.
The Life Cycle
The life cycle is not long for those like me
for we start very small as you can see.
My siblings and I, we number at six
On the same long shoot that looks like a stick.
With each passing day we grow to our size
Stretching our pods with goals to maximize.
The sun is so warm and helps us to grow
We all hope to open and put on a show.
Some of us grow slow and some grow fast
But the life of our bloom is one that wont last.
The life cycle is short, but shed not a tear
For behold we will come back year after year.
For those of us who so enjoy your flowers, it does get sad at the end of the season when they go to sleep or die. But we are renewed in hope knowing when spring returns they also will return.
Enjoy the beauty, love and peace of flowers and remember to share their beauty and kindness with others as they share theirs with you.
