Hope – Haibun of a Puffball

Funny thing about “Hope”. It is both fragile beyond imagining yet often has tenacity and strength, seemingly unbelievable.

How can this be?

Perhaps an analogy made with a puffball, to enlighten.

A Wish upon a puffball – one single little seed!

Fingers carefully grasped the fragile puffball’s stem, not wanting to disturb ethereal seeds too soon. My wish might not be heard, but blown away. Wish made, I blew gently, scattering fair dandelion seeds upon moist morning breezes.

Wishful thinking indeed for hopes to be realized, yet all that’s needed for the puffball is but a single seed. A lone survivor tossed in the unpredictable winds of nature. Only takes one … one seed to reach the earth for regrowth and fruition.

And so it is with hope – a seed of potential and possibility, cast upon the winds of fortune.

May our hopes, dreams and wishes reach fruition. All that is needed is one single seed!

hope strengthens me

a most delicate framework

of possibilities
