The Flower

I wrote this little piece earlier when i needed a break from study. It’s nothing special, just something lighthearted to brighten the day a little. I hope you enjoy it.

 

The Flower

In a garden full of life sat a flower, its petals wilted, and stem bent at an angle. While the rest of the garden received love and attention from those who visited, the flower was left alone to wilt and fade. One day, the flower was surprised to see someone approaching its dark corner of the garden. A little bird flew about it, tweeting merrily as its brightly coloured feathers brought colour to the shadowy corner. Each day the bird would visit and spend time with the flower, bringing it back to life with happy chirps and little hopping motions along the ground. Soon other visitors came to the little corner, some even doing their best to chase away the shadows. Nobody pleased the flower more than the bird however and nobody made the bird more as happy as the flower did. the flower began to stand straight again as her petals returned to their former beauty and her little area of the corner became full of light once more. Some say the bird and flower can be seen together enjoying each other’s company as the rest of the garden goes about its business.
