Earth Poetry


(Can you spot the sliver of rainbow in there ?)
Poetry month now, Earth Day tomorrow. We can hit them both at once.
Since everyone’s gardens are waking up (at least the Northern hemisphere ones) and so many blogs I read are full of the optimism of Spring and the new growing season, I wanted to share a poem that celebrates organic gardening.

Glorious Guano

When I bathe
I use guano salts
To make my feet
And hands
Sprout green
Leaves cover me
From head to toe
And wrap my body
In smoothy bark
No chemicals
Do touch my skin
And I flower
Like a cherry tree
Pigeon shit elixir
Is best
For a healthy growing plant
Like me

James Wilde (a.k.a. my dad)

Happy month and happy day to all!
