Their orbit is small, limited by forces of gravity which tether them to local areas of terra incognito. Mystery surrounds their activities. As funding for scientific observation is reserved for the more elevated celestials, these land locked terrestrials fill our atmosphere with bewitching potions of pollen that flow upon fragrant air currents that elude our understanding. We cannot control them although we try – our conventional weapons of steel and wood gain us only temporary results as we practice our raking and cutting techniques. Rather than attempting to control what we do not understand, we could better the universe by recognizing that when we stand at the precipice of mystery, we’ve been given the opportunities of learning and imagining that offers many more benefits that control and domination ever could. Because the earth borne satellites are outside of our human domain they offer an infinity of inspiration should we be mindful enough to observe the ones that fly and the ones that have fallen. Allow yourself to discover mystery in your atmosphere, and you will expand your universe.
This blossom of horehound has dried but is not forgotten by those who know how to gaze at the stars of the lowlands.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
