The Teaching Plant

The plant,
the one that survived,
the one that stuck around,
always reaching for a sun it couldn’t touch,
yet thriving on the effort
and encouraging thought with its silence.
The plant had no title,
just leaves when not in bloom
and patience when waiting for dampened soil.
That was teaching too.
I’m grateful.
