soft brown earth
crumbly soil
pushed over with a shovel
so it wouldn’t spoil

a single seed
planted deep within
the plant started off
rather thin

then over some weeks
with water and light
the plant looked
quite a sight

a pink flower
with patches of red
orange pollen
and a hanging head

pretty in the sun
snug at night
the pink flower
was very bright

then more months
and covered with bees
good weather and
a light breeze

the plant shared its seeds
all over the ground
and the metamorphosis
went once more round
