Poetry: Plant and Harvest Values

Nose-to-tail and vegans living
Same energy
Vegetables surround us, fruit is our jumping dessert
Plant and harvest values

Food desert, food swamp
Bottom line, processing until death do us part
Cheap “food”
Lessons, connected health, keeping your eye on the ball

Gleaners, sturdy ranch hand, workers and workers
No Farms No Food bumper sticker
Big bang to plate
Pleasant pastures and rolling thunder

Feverfew, tiny hummingbirds, cooling night breeze
Breath, sun, living with and within the elements
Raspberries growing by the backyard window

Foraging
Sage, huckleberries, dandelion leaves, grass, morels
Volunteer tomatoes, gift from past hands, the soil, and the Mother
