Burning Bush

_____________________________________

The short attention spans

Of each and Everyman

Have to be the reason

This plant is liked at all

Enthralling just in fall

And no other season

Truly, barely pleasin’

I will blame who I can

The short attention spans

Of each and Everyman

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.
