Tomatoes and Flight

Tomatoes from my garden ripening on the window sill allow me to take flight.

I can't physically survive on the meager amounts grown in my garden, but something internally is so satisfied. Tending Earth my soul thrives, my spirit flies. I am fed.

Tending Earth I am grounded and present, a participant in bringing forth Earth's fruits.

Some people feel the pull of space flight. I too am drawn to space flight, the flight taking place in the space I call inside.

I never imagined thanking the humble tomato for that experience but I do.

Tomatoes, thank you.
