The seeds tufts all tumbled out in a rush without hesitating for a moment to consider their plan, their direction, or how they would fend on their own. Each one leaped in a burst of joy, pure and simple.
If one were cautious, there would be moments of debate and thoughtful weighing of options. A plan might be devised to increase the chances of skewing the results of a jump in one’s favor, perhaps towards the meadow instead of the road. Or patience might be practiced so that waiting for a stronger winded day would be a better choice, and more beneficial in spreading seed further.
But oh the delay! All that studying and second guessing. All the added anxiety surrounding the desire to control situations for which we’ve never been put in charge of.
These babes in the wild took the chance that they were born to take. They were hard wired to jump, and so they did! I hope they made a wish as they leaped.
Away little ones! Tumble away and God’s speed to you. May your landing be soft and damp in rich soil and wildflowers flourishing.
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.
