Petal

Standard

emerging from
extremes stems
columns of sustenance
provided from the base
beneath the dirt
giving ability
for this
branch and leaves
to develop
a bud soon to
slowly open
revealing saturation
of color
formed only
in a path
determined from
its origins
supple and soft
delicate with strength
combined with
several others
this petal
becomes a
pretty flower
