#fern from .:. Unicorn Vibration .:.

Ferns never complain.
Their seeds dispersed unevenly
-Some never taking root-
Seek a fertile place.
The art of natural living.


Each reaching its own potential.
Uneven heights and varied designs,
Yet, interlaced in common soil.
Symbiotic of place and time.

United they persevere.

Quadrille #127: Planting Seeds | dVerse (


I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.

  1. Clever. Deeply rooted in the natural imagery, but there’s a nice bit of takeaway for those of human persuasion. I appreciate the physical shrug embedded within the language, that grows and becomes a hug. Splendid work.

  2. A wonderful poem and story. It is amazing how seeds spread and some wait in the soil, even for years, until the time is right to sprout and grow!

  3. Spot on portrayal of ferns! I find that sometimes a specially cultivated fern will revert back to its original form after it has dispersed its seeds, a form which is more basic and natural.

  4. I love to see the ferns spring up, they always remind me of the summers of my youth in the Lake District. A lovely quadrille!

  5. I love the contrast between the nonchalant ferns that never complain, some never taking root, and the unity of ‘uneven heights and varied designs’, ‘interlaced in common soil’ – teaching us humans a lesson.

  6. I love the personification of a nonchalant fern – teaching us that what will be, will be.

  7. I love ferns! They are so interesting. You did a beautiful job of flowing words and life science. Thank you for the visit and comment!

  8. This is gorgeously, gorgeously worded! I so love ferns, and the way you have presented them here .. I also admire the metaphor of everything being “interlaced in common soil.”💝💝
