Please come close to me. Please, up close, really close. Closer. Come right up to SEE ME. There is more to me than my shape, my form, my identity. I have details, features, precise diamond gems that shine brilliantly in a macro world. There are patterns, whorls, stars and spears that dance as individuals when you get really really close. Get dizzy with my decorations! My exquisite characteristics make me something quite different from what everyone expects, from what my name implies. I am more that what people see when they drive by.
I have stars inside me, and spears to protect myself, and also to hold onto what I find dear. I am a tumbleweed and I am tickled that you have braved my gruff exterior to get a glimpse at my inner universe, the place where my magic starts. No matter how coarse the exterior, there is always something beautiful to behold, if one dares to pierce the barrier that holds us back. Thank you, tumbleweed, for showing me that so pointedly.
Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.
We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
