She covers the earth in elegance
and is satisfied with sleeping outside
because the sun is her intoxication
and the rain is her wine.
She drinks to the fullest
and imitates the colours of her parents
but maybe not effectively.
Baby steps will become adult leaps.
She shines
and pulls strangers from afar
into her perfumed embrace.
Her elegance may be underrated
but bright mornings
and dewdrops speak for her.
They are her friends indeed.
Her beauty sometimes leads
to her death
because fingers cannot resist
touching her waist
and breaking her insides.
A smile,
a fragrance
and some love bugs she drops
on her path as she leaves home.
Some strangers are kind enough
to give her a helping hand
and some wine to drink
to make her happy about a new day
but nature does it better.
