Marijuana, The Beautiful Plant




Marijuana, The Beautiful Plant

The plants stand tall and green
Seven fingered leaves absorbing the sun
Growing daily, reaching for the sky
Marijuana, the beautiful plant

Buds like freshly iced cake
Grow green with white resin drops
Resplendent among the seven fingered leaves
Marijuana, the beautiful plant

Harvest is both a joy and a pain
Joy abounds with reaping of the buds
Pain for the loss of the beautiful plant
Marijuana, the beautiful plant

Crumbled, rolled and smoked
Colors meld together
In a psychedelic kaleidoscope
Marijuana, the beautiful plant

The aroma of cooking wafting on the air
Sets the mouth to drool and the craving begins
Sated, naptime is imminent
Marijuana, the beautiful plant

To some it’s illegal
To others a boon
To me it’s just
Marijuana, the beautiful plant
