Night-Day 21

The moonflower blooms only on summer nights. The scent, heavy as a gardenia, attracts moths. Drawn to white petals as big as searchlights, the moth dances between flowers, allowing the plant to re-seed. The seeds are large and waxy like pine nuts, but don’t mistake them for food. They’re hallucinogenic and deadly.
