The Daisy by Averie Sun (Highly Commended)

The seeds came one day in a craft-paper package,
Small and oblivious so.
They each were like brown crumbled-up bits of a cabbage,
But little did I know.
As time passed by, they grew up to healthy little plants.
Green as emeralds,
Tiny like ants.
A blade of grass, was what it resembled.
At last there came a flowering bud,
But that didn’t make it impressive,
Sprouting up from the mud,
But the message was really quite expressive.
The bud soon turned into a lighter blossom,
Extremely good-looking.
Though someone thought it would taste awesome,
And almost used it in the cooking.
A little kitten passing by in the mid of July.
It twitched its nose and came to smell the fragrance.
Then it went to chase a butterfly,
And forgot about the flower’s humble radiance.

The daisy was now one of a kind,
White, pure, beautiful so.
About it I had changed my mind.
But little did I know.
