Ode to Succulents
Fastidious and withstanding,
You are fragile but robust.
You are lush, pulpy, tender, ripe.
In the blink of an eye you can turn
unappetizing, shriveled, dry.
To the outside world you appear so strong.
As if you don’t thirst for as much water.
In reality if not showered you fade away.
One of your best qualities;
Looking as if you are on the brink of death,
Out of nowhere you can rise Like a Phoenix,
Resurrected with the utmost depth.
