The poem features a mysterious flower that looks different to each viewer, which leads to strife as everyone insists that their vision is “right.” Leaders and even a botanist are unable to agree on the nature of the flower—it takes a young girl to point out that the flower is, in fact, quite multidimensional. Remarkably, she has the ability to be heard by the squabbling masses, who then see beyond their fighting and commit to connecting with one another.
O’Meara’s thoughtful poem includes people realizing and voicing this important lesson:
One day, a very special flower blooms in a forest.
A special and unusual flower!
No one can agree on what color it is.
That’s because it looks different to different people.
And that’s when the fighting starts…
It takes a young girl to point out the truth.
But will the people listen?
