Root-bound, by Joan Ellen Gage

KAREN ROOTBOUND BEST

 

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!
