Poem 234 – Bred Bounty

Bred bounty

when the bounty comes from the earth
you plant it in, you can taste the difference

the slick of salt slipped off your brow
elevates the lettuce leaf

the oil on your palm rubbed on the unripe tomato hip
pushes it to blush red

the green pepper cucumber
strawberry & onion

can feel your tender gaze & reaches for your smile
the exchange of love seeps into the soil like sun & rain

the togetherness of growth is miraculous
lifting tendrils of taste buds only bred bounty can
