Lilies look to their bulbs and survive when leaves dry
Gaillardia gazes at stems. Preserve moisture.
Marigolds focus on node existence to thrive.
Vegetations possess this habit of nature.
Cacti do not starve because they preserve their food.
Flies of deserts conserve their water in chitin.
Thus creatures of nature observe her rhythm and mood.
To grow in God and flourish man must go within.
