#NationalPoetryMonth | Day 7
.
.
On #InternationalWomensDay my editorial team at work volunteered a few hours with @almacommunityoutreach. We spent our morning turning soil, harvesting cabbages the size of our heads, and plucking weeds (the most wonderful, meditative thing, especially in the shade). For as much as I love food and seasonal eating, I don’t spend a lot of time in the soil. I don’t have a garden, and I’ve killed several succulents. So that morning was special because I got a little bit dirty, ate a sweet cabbage leaf in the hot sun, and really felt this poem, too.
