Bolt

Savita with Kurma Avatar by A.Ramachandran
[ Bolt-ing/ In Botany, bolting is the premature production of a flowering stem. Most plants bolt due to hot weather. When the ground temperature goes above a certain temperature, this flips a switch in the plant to produce flowers....to abandon leaf growth almost completely. Bolting is a survival mechanism in a plant....when a vegetable plant bolts, its harvestable days are over.

Bolt/ A flash of lightning; a thunderbolt/ A sudden movement toward or away. ]

That
flower
should
be
the
death
of it.
