Proposal "P"


To produce a package for a time capsule that would portray my place on this planet, I provide these preferences:




* the puffy pouch of a Pink Lady's Slipper




* the pleasure perceived from a rainbow prism







* a Prickly Pear piercing the desert air








* the pounding percussion of a Pileated Woodpecker 





* trillium petals peppered with pollen








*  powerful roots pushing and probing below the Ponderosa Pines







* a pastel painting of pink petals







* the pacing pulse of a Phoebe in April





* the peculiar parts of a Pitcher Plant





* a penstemon propelling scarlet trumpets




* a pensive place beside a peaceful river






* particles of pollen packed in a bee's pouch




* a patch of pretty poppies






* the parallel leaves of a pixelated palm








* cumulus piling along the perimeter of the prairie





* the passion to prepare a persuasive, perceptive poem




* the patience to proclaim praise in a penetrating prayer
