you need a plant

"I repeat the words freshness, tenderness, softness, the happiness of birds, as if
speaking directly to a plant."

"One day you need a plant you don't know, in order to connect pieces in yourself,
or in a person you're trying to be with."

- Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, from Hello, the Roses

I love the work of this poet. You can read more here, a review of the book here.

At first she might seem difficult, but this is because her voice is so unique and you need to get used to the rhythms and cadences.

Wishing you a good weekend, and of course, all calm things.


  1. You have a great, comforting (calming) blog. I look forward to your posts and all the poems you share.

    Thank you, Shawna!
