Mother Nature with balanced pH perfume
births them from her mineral-rich womb
kisses each plant with life and love
Sunshine sends warm rays, bathes them in TLC
wraps each leaf and bloom in grace
develops colorful maturity.
Removal of pesky weeds offers space to breathe
frees each one to stretch out, to reach for the sky
promises a welcome retreat.
1000 tiny fairies fly down in raindrops, dewdrops
and touch each emerald green beauty with magic mist
giving them timely refreshment.
Godmother sits among the stars and
watches over all of them in moonlight
whispers prayers of sweet abundance and plenty.
These suburban zucchini plants flourish like a charm.
I expect a
dozen more tomorrow.
