Plants of summer

One generation plants the trees, and another gets the shade
~ Chinese proverb

Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.
~ Erma Bombeck

He who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love
~ Proverb

Most men (people), like plants, possess hidden qualities which chance discovers.
~ Fran├žois de la Rochefoucauld

gone to seed

their tang on the
tongue becomes a compact

globe, purplish, a fine
cook measures their

bite just so - writing
of their charms demands

knowing when their edge
meets our edge melding

fire with
fire, sole
