Pollinators…. ~ by a j mithra
Hummingbirds and ornithophilous (bird-pollinated) flowers
were created to have a mutualistic relationship.
The flowers have nectar suited to the birds’ diet,
their color suits the birds’ vision
and their shape fits that of the birds’ bills.
The blooming times of the flowers have also been found
to coincide with hummingbirds’ breeding seasons….
The Rose of Sharon has the nectar
that suits our spiritual diet..
The Rose of Sharon has the power
to purify our soul…
The Rose of Sharon’s will
is to shape our lives for His glory…
If only we had pollinated the way
The Rose of Sharon wanted us to do,
our classmates and our colleagues.
our neighborhood and our nationhood
would not only have known Jesus,
but also would have been effective pollinators…
By the way,
are we seasonal pollinators or regulars?
And he (Jesus) said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mathew 16:15)
Have a blessed day!

Ornithophily or Bird Pollination is the pollination of flowering plants by birds. The Creator created this association is derived from insect pollination (entomophily) and is particularly well developed in some parts of the world, especially in the tropics and on some island chains. The association involves several distinctive plant adaptations forming a “pollination syndrome”. The plants typically have colorful, often red, flowers with long tubular structures holding ample nectar and orientations of the stamen and stigma that ensure contact with the pollinator. Birds involved in ornithophily sre specialist nectarivores with brushy tongues, long beaks, capable of hovering flight or are light enough to perch on the flower structures. (Edited from Wikipedia)
