this is how it happens


The emerging palm frond grows hard, spike-like to its full length – rigid, straight, unyielding and quite lethal – then, its destination reached, it begins to open.  Its stiff fronds gradually appear, then begin to spread out, and as the opening proceeds, the stem frond relaxes, relaxes into receiving of sun and wind and rain, relaxes into the movement of the dance, relaxes into bowing grace and elegance; relaxes into pure palming play.
