Still blooming

The pond we loved
and skated on as kids
is well-clogged now,
and yet the water lily
still attempts to bloom.
She cannot see her reflection
any more,
her roots are choked,
and still she lifts
her petals to the sun;
still sings her pure clear
song of hope; still dares
to weep in concert
with the rain.
