Getting to the Root of Things

This was written for me by a friend who enjoys our gardens. Both the perennials in the front of the house and the roses ‘out back.’
We all need roots in Mother Nature.

Blue Flower of Wellbeing

The blue flower
extends a single root
into the earth,

a gold thread
descending through
crust and the mantle,

to the iron core.
Your wellbeing,
your wealth,

your weal,
is a garden well
drawing water

toward sunlight,
toward fields
of blue flowers.
