Ode to the "big" little flower

Now, in front of the house, in January

colourful, tiny flowers bloom in glory

telling us it’s ‘Spring’ here in Victoria

(a month early)

born from Nature’s hocus-pocus

most people walk by, do not notice

because they’re pre-occupied with pocus-hocus.

Only a few see these tiny Crocus, 
and bend down in wonder. Focus.

For only when you see these gems

will you experience the wonder

of Nature’s hocus-pocus.
