Capturing The Moment — Silverpuff and Desert Chicory   4 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.
