Gideon’s Challenge


and full of promise
colorful and bright.
Sticky bulbs
of procreation
ready to take flight.
And every touch
that comes
spreads potential
far and wide.

The purpose of flower’s beautiful colors and fragrant scent is to draw in assistance to spread their pollen far and wide.  This allows for reproduction as the pollen from one flower finds its way to another of its kind.   It is a continuous cycle of potential that is repeated again and again, a delicate dance that allows the future to be build from the present… from chance and cooperation.

This is the essence of potential in all things, and something I think about often.  Without chance and cooperation… there is no potential.  No matter if you are a flower… a tree… an insect… an animal… or a person.
