A Weed

entry picture

Yesterday I saw a weed,
proud and tall as a tower,
But it will be cut down soon,
Because it was not made a flower.

You see, a flower is considered pretty;
It pleases the eye with form and color.
But a weed is considered ugly,
And dares to spread, and cover.

So they say it is a choking plant,
And consider it a bother.
But a flower chokes just as well,
It is just has the decency to be prettier.

This is a flaw that's in us all,
To love one, then scorn another,
With little basis except our bias,
Of what is beautiful in nature.

I had just read "Moving On" and the good and fond memories we all have relating to old things and fresh starts when I noticed this gem!

'This is a flaw that's in us all,
To love one, then scorn another,
With little basis except our bias,...'
Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.

Thank you also for your very kind appraisal of "Flip-flops and Bottle Tops"
