Wild Flower Of The Countryside
It came to pass a man traveled to the country side in search for the perfect flower. He had grown bored with the conventional selection in the market to choose from and he especially loved wild lilies and sunflowers.
In his journey he stumbled upon the most beautiful wild flower he saw and went to pick it, so he could let it be planted in his garden to nurture and watch grow.
The towns people said, “This one is enchanted and much to wild for you good sir, she has a mind and will of her own but do take this one at your own risk.”
So he grew to love his wild blossom and put it in his garden and she grew majestically. One day however, in her boredom she said, “Oh my gardener friend, your garden is not my native land and find it dull these passing days. I want to depart and bloom somewhere else.”
So he said to her, “fair enough my little flower, yet I love you and you are a delight to me. Have I not taken good care of you and made sure you have had consistently? Have I not put fetilizer in your soil? Do I not make sure you get proper sunlight and moisture in your soil?”
She said unto him, “Yes sir, but see here I am a wild flower at heart and want to see the world, the country side and other wild flowers. I want to return to what I know for these other flowers are to tame and the roses I just do not get along with, I cannot get over their thorns they have.”
So he said, “My wild Lilly I love you still and will miss you.”
So she uprooted herself and left his garden and traveled to the wild countryside.
She had the times she always dreamed of, or so it was at first. Field parties and she would get wasted from the strongest of nectors. Every night she partied her petals clean off till the drought hit. For a long time there came no rain on the towns, coun tryside or surrounding villages. Soon came the pests to devour crops and caterpillars came to feed on her beautiful petals and leaves.
Finally, in sadness she cried alas, I miss my gardener who fed me his care and watered me daily.
One day she tried to make her way back to the garden yet collapsed along the way, she thought she was done for in the hot sun. The Gardener also went out in hopes to find her again and see how she faired, he asked around until he finally found her shriveled on the ground, taking her in his arms he said, “There there wild flower, you are going to be ok and I still have a place for you in my garden. So he took her home and she bloomed once more, her radiant fragrance and beauty once more bloomed forth.”
