You once resided   in the heart of the goddess   of fruitful abundance.  A house nestled   in-between   the thinning orchards   that bore life.

Green thumbs and calloused hands turn dirt into a bed of flowers.  I watch you casually sprinkle life into a seed and watch it grow.  Mother to children and mother nature you share nothing but love.  I pray that one day my hands will too learn some of what you know.

And as we all age   the new life shows signs   of thinking like you   when you were that age too.  You are the life blood.   The necessary pieces   that help us put together   who we are   and where we come from.

When the weather permits, picking potted plants for dishes delights the daring lodgers. Leaving little, the guests gobble the garden hastily heaving heartily all the while. We willfully wet our pallets piling [...]
