Lavender

A thin green stalk, rigid despite its size,

holds a few dozen purple flower heads.

The colours so crisp and the dimensions so exact,

it’s hard to believe something this perfect was born in the soil.

Now it lives in a small glass jar,

painted with snowflakes,

with a faint scent of ginger on its smooth walls.
