Callistemon 04:16
Callistemon's thirst must be quenched Legion thirty-four strong Come the vernal equinox Burst forth Coaxed by flame Seed capsules explode From within smoldering stamens As pollinated filaments turn to ash Teeming with hepialid larvae Its bark writhes with life Burrowed deep within To later take flight

The light shimmers off velvet leaves Silver-sheened guardian beacons Floral constellation glimmering majestic Argent protea Globose inriflorescences carried by the wind Silken veils perfume the air Like the fiercest fire Leucadendron's life burns fast From the flames of purification it rises anew To shine on once again

Pteridophyte 03:40
Binding the soil Seedless cryptogram Devoid of flowers Via spores it disperses Genders entwined As antherida and archegonia converge
