The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Delicate Balance

Droplets of rain delicately balance in the center of columbine leaves.

There is a delicate balance at work.  Drops of rain balance upon the leaves and stems of the columbine.  Are they single drops of rain--or multiple drops of rain that have accumulated and grown into crowns?  As I get close up to observe, I am stilled by the minutia.  There is not just one instance of this, look close at the picture, there are several droplets balancing.  I marvel at the intelligence of this tiny slice of our natural world.  I imagine this is a rain dispersement system.  That when the leaves can no longer hold the weight, the rain falls, giving the roots of the plant a hearty drink.  The delicate balance of our world is life-affirming.
