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

But what if the carrots don’t grow in time

For us to eat and the

Broccoli flowers

For someone else?

Still I sit

On the old broken chair

Surrounded by the tiniest

Most vulnerable

Shoots

I take my flip flops off

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:

Nurturing

Is about

Love
