The month is March
Packets of possibility arrive
The seed trays are waiting
Carefully little seeds
Are planted in the tray
Of cups. Gently watered

The sunroom nurtures
Their daily growth with
Warmth of early spring sun
Up they come, one by one
Asters, scallions, spinach
Nasturtiums, and lettuce

The garden now tended
And prepared. Moo-doo compost
Organic fertilizers all turned in. Seedlings planted
July arrives with heat and rain
Baby plants mature greatly
Lifting their heads to the sun above

In gratitude we share
The fruits of our labors
Friends receive a blessing
We learn much from Mother Earth
About how to sow seeds to grow
And how to share with gratitude
