Roots lie underneath
gilded in grime
Above the bitter sight
stands a flower

A perk of nature
A sweet taste to the eyes
compared to rot

Beneath every flower
is a secret root,
it doesn't introduce itself,
it is too shy.
It hides, only to
be dug up by the
curious

I like the contrast and the words you choose- perk, sweet, rot, dug...they all give this piece a dimension to it, a certain taste. Keep up the good work :) You are gifted with an awesome choice of words.
