A Tiny Bud

Hiding behind a bunch of leaves

A tiny bud tried to reach

Open sky and vacant space

To show the world its cute face

Leaves held on stubbornly

Knew the time was yet to come

Tender unripe and incomplete

It needed their shade to grow

One day the leaves swayed a bit

Rays of sun reached it’s sheath

Warmed with glow petals spread

Flower bloomed above the leaves
