Stir seeds into well-drained soil.
Fold in a half-cup live worms.
Sprinkle in occasional rain
until green shoots appear.
Blend in sun mixed with shade.
Add a dash of moonlight.
Simmer on low four to six weeks
in the slow oven of summer
until sweet blossoms unfold.
Swirl in butterflies. Whip in bees.
