Plants are filled with vessels--
seen and unseen--
that allow them to survive.
A veined leaf reveals this structure,
as does a transparent stem.
Plants also produce and distribute vessels; what are flowers and fruits but containers for seed-making and dispersal?
What is a seed but a vessel of life?
