Shernaz celebrates nature in this evocative poem.

we bloom invisible, undesirable
among seemingly well-laid out ornamentals;
you wage war on us wanting our annihilation

we are not an anomaly of Mother Nature
there’s place for us too in her Grand Scheme;
dandelions to you, we can be flowers for another

rejected root, stem, leaf and petal by you
we at times are born again in loving hearts;
honoured to be their invaluable blossoms

when replanted tenderly, we flourish
in the warmth of nurturing homes –
our healing powers redeeming their emptiness.
