Poetry prompt:  Write a vegetable poem.

Give Me the Greens!

Oh Mother Earth,
sweet womb of life---
home of mineralized substances;
please lend me your water and
plant me with a pungent flavor
until I am sluggish no more.
Impregnate me with a high concentration
and starch me up enough
to enrich another life.
Please, spare me your warm soil and sun
to germinate a powerhouse within
to reduce risky impairments.
Enroot me to reap.
Leaf up my spirits.
Crop me raw and bare.
Cook me not.
Just let me flaunt my greens!
