Indomitable Will of Plants

December 14, 2008

Even with the onslaught of winter, some flowers refuse to yield to nature. They won’t give in despite the overwhelming forces aligned against them.

Yes, I’m granting powers to plants — thinking, free will, emotions — that to our knowledge don’t exist.

Nevertheless, I admire their determination whether it’s real or not. I’ll gladly accept motivation from perennials.

Ultimately, the flowers will succumb to winter. Come spring and summer, new blooms will return. I prefer to believe they’ll be the same ones, reborn.
