lavender


stretching tall beside this immensity
your fragrance rises
and sweetness
fills the breeze
in appearance, you are by far,
the lesser
and your stem bends under the weight
of your heavy crown
you stand the trials of living,
exposed on every side,
you brace to intensify your hold
knowing all along
that the winds that force their will,
also carry your perfume.
