Every movement is a sign
That denotes something.
There is always a reason why
Nothing is just accidental.
My terrace garden plan
Started with growing a pot of spinach
While the first few weeks
There was a bountiful green…
As they grew some more
The foliage got a little dense.
It perhaps was overcrowded
It harboured a certain dampness…
Perhaps the spinach leaves curl
In lack of space to accommodate
In so doing they become vulnerable
To infestation in distress.
Any sign of curling
Is a contraction
For self protection
From the ravages in living life!
There is always remedy to heal
In going back to basics
In caring to correct the ways
In allowing space for growth.
Let there be space around
For the leaves to breathe in
Regulate the water intake
Harvest them at the right time.
Growing plants teaches many lessons
Worth applying in life and living.
The choice is ours to take
And choose to optimize in the changes.
