By Peter Blau
I kneel in the black dirt arranging seeds in the earth the soil touches my soul From tilling to harvest I tend the garden with love and attention as if caring for a child. I become one with the cycle of life observing the colors, shapes, textures and patterns in wonder. Gardening, painting with plants, brings enjoyment to the eyes, pleasure for the senses. And similar to a Zen meditation, creates a profound sense of peace.
