I thought it was dead

 

Time passes
I water the bulb
It grows and blooms

I enjoy the bloom
The sometimes scent

But dying back
And going brown
I throw it out

Hidden
In the dark
and undergrowth
Turning out damp leaves
And pulling out old weeds
I find the bulb
Weakly growing
tendrils and gangly

Determined

And brought in to light
colour gaining
And new girth
New leaves
And vigour –
brought to new birth
