Next week is Thanksgiving! What a great time to think about the things for which we are thankful.
One thing that I am grateful for are the amazing plants that grace our lovely planet.
Plants quietly growing up from the ground,
producing vibrant benefits, reverberantly profound!
Be it a tree, blossom, seed, or root.
Leaf, bark, resin, or fruit.
Mother Earth’s Magic: Give a seed water, sun, & fresh air.
It will grow a vitality to bountifully share.
The Glory of Harvest Time! Dry, cook, distill, or infuse.
Many methods from which to choose.
Herbs or Spice: As a therapy or to add flavor; either will suffice!
Essential Oil & or a Salve: Equally handy to have.
Growing from our Blessed Earth: many varieties; a wealth of worth!
Potpourri & Tea: Both will incent the room with jubilee.
From the floral bouquet of a lavender sachet,
To the razzle dazzle, we feel from eating fresh basil.
Or, here’s a hint: Got bad breath, eat some mint!
Want to stay calm, brew some tea with lemon balm.
Or, I do suppose, you could sniff a rose!
Plant remedies have been carried from generation to generation.
Through history, our good health thrives with our lovely planet’s vegetation!
