It’s been growing in some housebricks
on a pot outside our door
for quite some months, innocuous
Not sure what it was for
But just this week quite suddenly
It’s come into it’s own
As several tall flowers have
spectacularly grown

Crested pink with purple flecks
quite beautiful are they
Diminutively lovely
for this succulent display
