“We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibers, our actions run as causes and return to us as results.”
― Herman Melville
(the various parts and moments in the life of a tulip bulb / Julie Cook / 2015)
Enter the unassuming white, meaty, brown paper wrapped bulb
Add a little water
Then add to all of that a little bit of expectancy. . .
Slowly at first, then rapidly picking up speed. . .squiggly spaghetti noodle like roots emerge, sprouting out from underneath. . .
All of this while stiff green shoots reach upward
Yet tucked away, hiding within. . .
the growing. . .
Hidden away there hides. . .
the amazing,. . .
the miracle. . .
