Miss Waterlily - final version

Miss Waterlily confusing seasons paralyzed her all week long during days and nights she felt the cold nights after sunny summer days but kept on growing she already sent ten buds above the surface patiently waiting they climbed all the way from the darkness and the depth towards their sunlight powered by the sun the first to ignore cold nights waiting for more warmth she reveals fragile almost transparent white leaves in a royal crown even more fragile not longer hidden inside her soul of pure gold © Ellie Daphne Note: it took nature and me more than a week...........

    I am always amazed how plants grow in the soil. My grandmother used to say how could anyone not believe in God when such incredible things are constantly happening. Pretty work here - you capture nature's essence in this poem! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    A tremendous beginning to this. Keep it up! And why wait for more flowers to grow? Make them blossom in your stanzas.

    Drake, I am puzzling on a few words....... when, after awaiting another(very unusual) month that first flower burst out of her bud..... and capture that intense feeling........... I have a some options "on my mind" but want to be sure..............to create the poetic picture I am about to see.......
