Homage to potted plants

by Andrea Elizabeth

Potted plant are an homage to ground grown plants.

To the pessimist they are just pottage.

Pottage is a pot of vegetable soup.


What they do is confuse a person as to whether they are in our outside.

Putting potted plants outside is like dangling a carrot in front of them.

See the nice, pretty grounded plants across the sidewalk?

Don’t you just wish?

If there is only concrete around, then they are like animals in a zoo.

So what are we to do in these concrete jungles we have made? Stop pretending? No, iconophiles do not pretend that which has passed away no longer exists. We venerate. So let us bow before and kiss the potted plants as martyrs from a paradise that once was.
