Your affection for me, is like
Daily recommended servings of
USDA suggests 2 to 3
Cups of life affirming nutrients
every day. And you, love, provide,
A balanced pyramid, a
Wholesome foundation, of
Joy and solicitude. Soul food.
Repairing my once broken heart with
your particular brand of antioxidants.
You sustain me, you are sweet potatoes.
Sustenance. Nourishment. Pure
Of heart offering neverending,
Rations of adulation.
You are my enchanting autumn
brussel sprout. The Capsaicin comprised
jalapenos of summer,
My springtime fiddleheads, first garden offerings.
Winter squash, my sweet dumplin'.
A spell of seasonal victuals. Harvested,
From dark places pulled and plucked
And prodded along with care.
Cultivated to be a perfect,
You are nothing short
Of nutritious. You are of the Earth.
Grounded so I can fly. Deep and sure footed.
Essential for growth and
The maintenance of life.
