April 27th


My mother prays with Tusli
I will bring you
some of
the seeds.

The next day,

The third day,
I find a small pot
and a jar
to begin their germination.

I allow the student
who brought them to me
to pour
the first water.

Holy Basil
Queen of Herbs
known for its restorative
and spiritual properties.

Sacred herb of India.
Manifestation of Lakshmi.
Goddess of wealth, fortune,
and prosperity.

Keeping the energy
and whole house pure.

And I
am honored.
