Urban Gardening Chants

If you are wondering why my passion flower looks so gloriously weird, just remember that “Trees and plants always look like the people they live with, somehow.”  – Zora Neale Hurston [and Moi]

When
every city
wails and wails,
my urban garden chants
comfort.

Hope,
my sweet
love, is bright
skies celebrating all
life.

In nature,
all shapes and colors
grow when loved.

  12. It would be hard for me to get by in these times without those small comforts too. LOL, thankfully the plants I share my space with don't require a master's green thumb. My little delights come in all shapes and colors. Now if you'll excuse me I need to sip some deep dark tea before kissing my sweet cream darling. :D
