The bud swelled

the spring flower

unfolded

a blinding blue

translucent star

Growth: The irreversible increase in dry matter

The baby smiled

at his mother

suckled on the

warm soft breast

taking sweet nourishment

Growth: The irreversible increase in dry matter

The new leaf

shone vivid green

against azure sky

where only just before

there was

nothing

Growth: The irreversible increase in dry matter

The seed swelled

enlarged

burst open

and a green flicker

of hope for the world

emerged

Growth: The incredible increase in what matters
