Blooming Out Of Season

Christmas Poinsettia blooming in May

I sometimes feel like this little poinsettia,
bad timing,
wrong colour,
unnoticed,
just doing its own thing,
in spite of what everyone else
thinks or does.

Who decides these things I wonder
and insists a certain plant or person
is only acceptable at a certain time of year
or at a certain age?

My little poinsettia doesn’t know the answer
and neither do I.
