Joy and Nurture - the Michele Dahlia

A tuber was planted way back in the Spring.
With water and warmth it slowly grew
until stalks and green leaves stood firm.

Dahlia bud

Weeks passed, 
then more, and more,
before the long stalk 
began to show
a rounded green bud.

Petals begin to unfold


  Two weeks again, 
  and petal after petal displays 
  its promise of loveliness.                                                                                                         

Dahlia opening fuller

Looking at the lovely flower
she remembers her delight
when as a child,
she saw her first dahlia -
a creation of Love and Light . .
