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
