Blooming In The Dark (NaPoWriMo 8 of 30)


Some flowers have learned enough to bloom in the dark
Others have found a new means of safety
Closing their petals at night to keep their pollen moist
They open to attract the things which breathe life into them
Closing against night predators that only attempt to take
Conserving energy by closing themselves to things that propose a significant rick
Botanists believe these plants have simply adapted to protect their investment
We stand to learn from them
The beauty of God teaching preservation through nature
If only we found the strength to say no when it was enough
Open up when it was beneficial
Nyctinastic movements are associated with diurnal light and temperature changes
Components of truncated sinusoid
I am learning to become the queen of the night
Robert Hayden was correct in stating “Night is an African juju man weaving a wish and weariness together to make two wings”
The art of creating between a rock and a hard place
The wish of the tired having given all they could
Until the only thing that remained was to bloom
The mystic of contemplative dimensions transposed in extraordinary states of mind
Seeking the Absolute infinite of God
Between perennial and constructionist approaches
Reformation of enlightenment in union with the Divine
No longer budding by call or beacon
But waiting
Deep in the folds of its own safety
Blooming has new meaning

  1. Reformation of enlightenment in union with the Divine
    No longer budding by call or beacon
    But waiting
    Deep in the folds of its own safety
    Blooming has new meaning [….]
    To me, this reads like music.
    And anyone who truly knows me…knows that I live, eat and breathe music. It’s in my blood.
    Again. Thank you sharing your gift.
