|A single flower emerges from the earth
The first resident of a barren landscape
Knowing only darkness since its birth
It finds the light for the first time since its escape
The warmth of the sun drawing it from the cold ground
Where it rested long dormant waiting for its moment to rise
Its arrival unheralded, passing without a sound
Betraying the bright colors unseen by another's eyes
It opens, allowing all to look upon it for the first time
It shares its beauty with those who have known only pallor
Beaming brightly in the sun it concludes its climb
Proudly displaying the strength of its color
Enjoining others to follow and unveil their own story
The flower blooms in all its wondrous glory
