Bud of a flower,
open, reveal thy beauty,
and color our eyes.

I cannot picture,
this earth without your presence,
you are needed in life.

Your plant family,
400,000 species,
grass, daisy, orchid, are some.

Remnants of you, see,
your kingdom trace back to a,
Jurassic era.

now embrace sunshine,
attract guests with your color,
that they might find you.

Both male and female,
with pistils and stamens,
boundaries are broken.

-For atop your stem,
reproductive organs dwell,
encased in petals.

Pollination needs,
help, ask the bees to carry,
pollen to stigma.

Help is rewarded,
Nectar, a sugar-based sweet,
a feast you must seek.

Please walk gentle,
for some have intentions that,
are carnivorous.

Water, sun, soil, air,
and carbon dioxide bear,
Photosynthesis.

The process makes food,
chlorophyll provides color,
and ends the cycle.

Germination is,
the start of growth, for seeds to,
emerge from the earth.

The roots push down and,
anchor the seed into soil,
as the stem rises.

When petal, pollen,
leaf and stem dance in the wind,
life begins again.
