Hi, dear Christine!
This poem is such a lyric poem!
I feel it very deep as I had too gardens that I nurtured with love and, yet, I had to leave them. Especially my last one, where I even planted trees and my two beloved green special children: a Babylonia willow, which I named Hippie and a willow matsudana Tortuosa Aurea, which I named Funky.
I felt nostalgic reading your poem because I felt Earth and humans relationship ancient history passing through your composition. It’s so poetic and the feelings and dialogue between you and Soil are so earnestly melting.
It’s so pure and beautiful! Thank you.
