Rare (rough Draft)
Author: Meridian Zuriel


A flower
So soft, so delicate, so rare
So genuine, so true
It isn't just anywhere
A dime a dozen of the opposite, however
Is seen almost everywhere

A hidden gem
Without the cosmetics
So natural and earthly
Enhancements take away
From its true beauty
Far beyond what the eye can see

A tree
Rooted so firm, so strong
Withstanding storms
All year long
Stable and supportive
Even when life throws a curve
Mature enough to swerve
Away from discord sowers
Negative influences, associations
All about separation
From little birdies carrying gossip information

An owl and an ant
Wise enough to plan, prepare and store
Protect and unify all the more
Evident of how much they care for
Selflessness comes automatic
Helpfulness does too
Although we all know
Roses are red
And violets are blue
this flower is not only unique
It's often overlooked in plain view
