Day 22 A Poem About A Plant in Honor of Earth Day

My Mother the Science Teacher
and Her Friend the Wild Carrot

It’s not magic; it’s capillary action
turning Queen Anne’s Lace blue. 

This has been another homemade
science lesson brought to you by 
your own mother, cut wildflowers and
Betty Crocker Food Coloring in a vase.

It works with daisies too.
