Her Green Thumb
Heals the land she graces,
Her open heart,
Loves the people she faces.
Lift up the spirits of all the folks.
Her flawless sense of style,
Is matched only by her wit,
She is of the Earth,
Yet she is of spirit.
Hers is always sage advice,
Even when it’s hard to hear it.
Although her feet are on the ground,
And her head is in the sky,
Her heart is the meeting place for both,
A well-grounded spiritualist, by and by.
Joining together a variety of folks,
Filling others with passion and worth,
Making bloom both plants and hopes,
She is a blessing upon this Earth.
