Plucky

_____________________________________

Tiny seed settles in a crack

Dormant during the winter storms

Emerging from the dark tarmac

As the cold solid soil warms

*

Strongly choosing not to conform

Tiny seed settles in a crack

Seemingly bucking all the norms

Some folks may be taken aback

*

Of course there are a few drawbacks

But tradition doesn’t inform

Tiny seed settles in a crack

Persistently the plant performs

*

Through every season she transforms

For success she has quite the knack

While refusing to be uniform

Tiny seed settles in a crack.
