A seedpod is the result of a mature plant. As they dry, the seeds drop and blow and spread - reproducing themselves, starting the cycle over once more. Prickles on the seeds catch on some unsuspecting passerby so that they end up in far-flung spaces.
We must let our seeds go to see how they can fare, what abundance can result, what blessing they may bring. The parent forgotten, but without whom the now would never be.
