I had to marvel over the time-lapse clip for awhile before I even read your poem. I have to get one of those Lithops flowers. Got to. That is the coolest bit of nature I've seen in a while. So first off thank you for that!
This kind of reminds me too of when you see a wildflower that has grown through cement, just that breathtaking reality that something can survive through anything & by any means. It's often those things that we perceive as fragile that surprise us with their strength the most - like flowers, like love.
Your descriptions are lovely & the conclusion is spot on. I did trip up a little here
"you marvel at the life
it is life"
but I have the feeling that perhaps I am not reading it properly. It's a little early in the morning here & I'm only allowed so much coffee. :)
Also, I think the "its own poem" at the beginning is too obvious. The poem itself is already saying that without saying it, you know? Just some thoughts.
