Capturing The Moment — Silverpuff and Desert Chicory   6 comments

7 Falls April 2013Silverpuff and Desert Chicory — Image by kenne

They grow up together
maturing in the desert sun.

She became a
beautiful white flower —
chicory by name.

Soon one night
he blossomed
into a handsome
yellow flower
only to change
dramatically
by mid-morning
to a silver globe —
silverpuff by name.

Standing there alone
only she knew
of his conversion —
making his change
even more special.

Coupled together
to the earth
their offspring
scattered to the wind.

Soon the very elements
that nurtured
their beginning
will bring about
their ending.

  4. The meaning here is so much deeper than two flowers on the desert floor. What a great analogy.
