The Tomato

“I planted, but God was causing the growth!”
1 Corinthians 3:6

Tomato so juicy
so firm and so round
I can hardly believe
you came from the ground

Filled with vitamins
light and Love
my pallat delights again
in my mouth you I shove

upon the white bread
sprinkled with salt & pepper
layered with lettuce
and it tastes even better

Bright red and meaty
that's how I like it
not tainted with toxins
that leave me decrepit

No wicked witch
with a poison apple
I've made the switch
and chose to go natural

Corporations can make
their "ugly" tomato
but when I bake
I'll go from farm to table

Those tomatoes look so healthy and yummy!

Beautiful verse, too.

It's good to visit you again, Laura. Thanks for the beautiful music :-)

Hope everything's well with you and family.

yours are beautiful, I'm trying not to be jealous. The crows absolutely ruined my tomato patch this year. Out of twenty plants I only got a handful of tomatoes. My hubby said,,,"Well, honey, they let you have that garden for a long time before they found it." Nice perspective.
