“All plants are our brothers and sisters.
They talk to us and if we listen, we can hear them.”
I was rained with kisses
that left me wet and ready to bloom.
Now Summer’s heat teases my fruit and warms my core.
I am growing ripe for the picking,
awaiting hungry mouths
and taste their fill of me.
My flesh sister told me, “My daughter
climbed out of my wet and dark, head first, and covered
in the richness of my inner-juice.”
I said, “My child feeds yours
for the Fall.”
