Exotic flowers are pampered,
Kept warm, nurtured and lovingly tended.
Not unusual are these blossoms, easily found, easily seen.
Truly extraordinary blooms are those that appear in run down places,
On stony ground, with poor light and little care.
Delicate plants filled with resilience, stretching for the light,
Rebounding leaves that lift after being crushed by careless feet,
Stems that can withstand even the harshest of winds.
Blossoms that open at any given chance, allowing heavenly scents to colour the air.
Exotic blooms offer unusual aesthetics, beautiful as they may be,
But truly extraordinary flowers colour places where exotic blooms would wither and die.
Extraordinary flowers take root and brighten places that no other life could ever survive.
