As I Gazed


As I gazed upon a seed
And pondered its unadorned feature
Imagined the beauty within it holds
Comparable to a mythical creature.

Placed the seed in a petri dish
Nourished with nature’s power
In time I placed it in a pot
Now it's a beautiful flower.

As days went by it began to wilt
Its beauty lost in time
But in the mass of crisp pedals
A seed survived its prime

As I gazed upon this seed
And pondered its unadorned feature
Imagined the beauty within it holds
Comparable to a mythical creature.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
