Lion's Paw

you can see why
it inspired a song.

This one
grown from a packet of seeds
souvenir of a traveling friend,
blooms every year.
And every year
I drink it in
all in awe
that it continues to exist
despite being far away
from it's natural habitat.

The ability to not only survive
but, adapt and thrive
is a humbling and inspiring
thing to witness.
