POETIC PONDERING ON: What rhymes with Wisteria?

 

An abundance of wisteria
if found flourishing
in Bulgaria
might migrate to Bavaria
causing outbreaks of malaria?
Stropharia?
HYSTERIA!
Especially
if you’re an
appendicularia.

 

 

It must have been the intoxicating beauty of this cascading wisteria that inspired my silliness today. It’s not my best poem, but you’ll have to admit, we might never have otherwise learned about another mushroom species or this *stunning little organism*
(hit the link for photos). So I think I’ll just leave you with that…

❤ Be Well ❤
And Thank You for stopping by!

* Appendicularians […] are tiny tadpole-shaped organisms that create a disposable mucous house for feeding. Their body consists of a short oval trunk and a broad, flat tail. […] [Their] Discarded houses provide an important substrate and food source of planktonic debris known as ‘marine snow’.” *

  2. I had wisteria at my home in San Jose and when it bloomed, it made me incredibly happy. Unfortunately the blooms only lasted a short time. I can see how the blooms could make you giddy, and only giddiness would explain that poem. It’s cute. Thanks for the post.

    I love Wisteria! We have a small one in our front yard. It has a distant cousin in a Jacaranda in the backyard.

  4. My goal for today: casually work “pelagic tunicates” into conversation. Appendicularia is too much of a mouthful. Cool critters!

  6. Goodness. I clicked on the link to see the photo but then thought, now why do you want to learn more about something that makes a disposable mucous house? Though the grandsons could find it fascinating…. Thanks for the wisteria fun
