Vegetal Morphism

Strings of the universe

In today’s WordPress Daily Post Prompt, the word is Vegetal.  Both an unusual and interesting word, in that its definition in the dictionary lists it as an adjective:

  1. of, relating to, or characteristic of vegetables of plant life
  2. of or relating to processes in plants and animals that do not involve sexual reproduction; vegetative.

For me, these definitions invoke images of lush plant life that reproduces in spectacular fashion…


This image invokes both plant life and the forces of creation in reproduction. In no way is it passive in the way we often relate to the term vegetative.

What images are brought to your mind by this concept?
