Slow, like a flower starts

Growing to it’s nurturer

Sometimes it’s painful

breaking through the ground.


  1. What a beautiful poem! I love the unexpectedness of the ending, and how it makes me think about the beginning in a totally different way.


  2. Thank you for this poem! I have been able to think of SO many moments that exhibit the feeling this poem shows! I must say it is a new and refreshing way to look at students in my classroom. Love this!!!
