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!

  1. That is a great poem for the spring.. I hope you are having a nice warm day, we are still a bit chilly and boy am I tired of it! c

  2. I cannot believe how green everything is in your photo! We’re still a few weeks away from those vies but they’re on the way.
    Your father knows how to welcome Spring: with a bath and a poem. Perfect!

  3. That does it. I am putting you back into my email notifications. I just miss you every time because I don’t go to the reader often enough. You’ve been so busy and it is all just wonderful! πŸ™‚
