RESILIENT FLOWER

Radiant Flower

There is nothing more hopeful and blissfully ignorant than a beautiful child who has not yet realized (or remembered) the brutal realities of the physical universe.  A fresh, pristine sense of gentle joy permeates their Being….like a newly blossomed flower, flourishing in the energy of the sun, and, as yet, not scorched by it’s unrelenting heat.  What price would be pay to protect our innocent children, and ourselves, from reality?  And yet we survive.  We protect, sustain and defend.  We love, and then forget again….

It’s Springtime!!  If you’re sneezing, your eyes are red and your sinuses are completely full of pollen, it’s because all the trees and grasses and flowering plants are having SEX!  Here is a wonderful lecture on TED Talks given by Johathan Drori, that explains the phenomenon of plant sex.  (Ladies, be careful that you aren’t impregnated by pollen floating in the wind!  🙂

FAST FLOWERS

Flowers are a very effective sexual organ of the plant world.  Each flower opens itself with complete aesthetic bravado, complete with potent perfumes, brilliant colors and delicate textures.   They entice every passing bird and insect to lend assistance in their reproductive quest, to transport the vital elements of reproduction between the male and female organs of the plant.  If human beings behaved this way, every roadway and street corner would be crowded with naked females, begging male passers-by to impregnate them!  Thank goodness human beings have a little bit more discretion as to how and why they select sexual partners….no much, but a little.
