Bumper Crop

Oh thorn bush                                                          

picked this morning

picked this morning

oh thorn bush

you are the best

you have produced much more than rest

the thornless have little but you gave the most

I have reached in

reached in slowly

as to not get snagged by your thorns

I did not plant you

nor did I cultivate you

but there you were growing along the fence line

I did not remove you

I let you grow

now 2 years

you spread and produce even more

I do not own you nor the land

but yet I eat like birds from the air.

I am in transition. I see myself as a Spiritual Writer and as such my blog will slowly change with me still holding tight to being in the garden as a child loving my teacher.
