Star Seed Blossoms

Star Seed Blossoms

for Thanksgiving

In the valleys of the
Slower Branch Ranch
we cultivate compassion,
grow hope, germinate joy

seed, stalk, leaf, and root,
bud, blossom, flower, fruit

in digging that dirt
and kissing the breeze
we watch in amazement
as the stars seed the fields 

here now, me the feeder,
you the eater, 

it works both ways simultaneously
of course, you know,
I cannot grow it all

and I have to eat too
We pause in this moment of grace
and I thank you for your work
here in the dirt
