The Root of the Problem
It has been suggested
that when your life seems without joy
or laughter, and you have no interests,
you may be root-bound and need re-potting!
What I take away from this,
is the need to nourish the soul, our roots,
to improve our condition. Subject our foliage
to sunshine, or to the warmth of human touch,
and give our bodies, our plants, sustenance.
To strengthen and green-up, expose ourselves to
fresh air, drink clean water, mist our outer leaves.
Don’t forget to feed our heads with
literature, music and friendship.
Then, may we blossom and reach toward the sun!
