A Tiny Bud is Plucked


a tiny bud is plucked from the garden
and thrust into a watered vase with the others
it struggled to find space in that little vase
competing with the other flowers
more exotic some with deadly thorns

in that crowded vase
it could hardly breath
the tiny bud withered
deprived of the chance
to bloom
