claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
now that the herbs are settled, growing and the path is in its final position (after a couple other formations), the kids walk it like it is a labyrinth…
i must teach them the song i find myself humming eveytime i walk through:
i am so grateful to have found this part of myself…this green part that was surely nurtured as i watched so many women in my family ahead of me work the land and make amazing things happen.
we are eating our peas, lettuce, spinach every day…what a gift to have peas on earth.
but oh, i have said goodbye to my poppies…i waited for them and their beauty lasts only a short time…the last one to bloom:
we have an amazing creator.
