Day 48: The veg patch

I put out the carrots today

In a patch of brocolli

Pea and lettuce

On ground we are moving from

A house ours yet not ours

Roots for plants

Meant for our tummies

And I breathe in the growth

And love them

Wish them health

To thrive

It isn’t about the end result

Food to eat and abundant

Harvest anymore:
