in love with my garden

It’s Earth Day. Or the day after, to be exact. Let’s hope being a day late is not a portent of things to come. So this morning after, I’m sending mash notes to Earth for making my little garden possible. I want to thank photosynthesis for everything you do. I want to give special thanks to the atmosphere, to rocks, to continental drift. Who am I forgetting? Oceans, plankton, magma. You know who you are. I couldn’t have done it without you. You too, moon and tides. I also want to thank my latitude, nighttime pollinators. Oh, there’s just too many to thank, and I don’t want to forget anyone. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Earth, I owe everything I am to you.
