Still blooming

To be forever moving –
Is it a crime to stand still?

What if you are still growing
In the same garden,
Still flowering each year?

So what if the bush
Gets a little thicker,
A little less supple;
A regular pruning
Keeps it trim –
A diet of dynamic lifter
Keeps it flowering brightly.

More resilient
Than new plants,
More drought tolerant,
More frost resistant.

You know it will be there
Under the morning sun,
Just like yesterday,
The year before that.
