If you follow your bliss, you will always have your bliss, money or not. If you follow money, you may lose it, and you will have nothing ~ Joseph Campbell

dirty feet

the watering wand
kicks up the dirt
to tiny droplets
that land on her feet

out in the garden beds
barefoot
and happy
sinking into the loose earth
picking pieris rapae
off the broccoli leaves

trelissing the
cucumbers - tendrils
grasping string and stake
male flowers like orange snow

training tomatoes
with tan kitchen twin

inspecting the nibbled
leaves of cauliflower
and the beans (the poor
little beans)
barely a chance to grow maintenance leaves

"the beans will grow up to the sky"
says the 4 year old with her arms stretched and fingers wide
like in her story book

her feet are dirty too.
