Five Petals Poem by Maylee Bossy


Friends are
the blooming hearts
Never wishing
to alter you

Dissecting and injecting
Spirit burning
under a microscope
How the people gather
to admire the mutations

I could never be buried in that dirt

Instead,

Friends water you
Helping you grow
and blossom
Branching out
to new things

Because at the root of everything
You'll always be what you were
as a seed

Poet's Notes about The Poem

As an assignment, my English teacher wrote famous quotes about friendship all over the white board then told us to do better. This provoked my first quote, 'Friends are the people in this world one can tolerate.' I'll admit I'm no Aristotle, but I figured I could get a little more philosophical than that. Here's one of my later attempts.

The title comes from my mother who always said, 'The most beautiful flowers have an odd number of petals'
