The Bridge

I am always in awe of what plants do. Here is a little poem along these lines:

The Bridge
I ate the fruit
I saved the seed
I put it in the ground
and day by day
with sun and rain
a bridge has dared
to bring together
Heaven and Earth.

A short poem

Gratitude To A Vegetable Plant

Thank you,
for speaking to the elements
on my behalf.
Thank you for reaching deep
and reaching high;
that through your efforts
I may bite
into the soil and the sky.
