NPM: Hope is… Silvopastures

Hope is…

Silvopastures, places
where animals and woodlands,
fruit trees and pastures,
are interwoven
into one community.

Where relationships 
are restored,

Where healing

Today’s poem was inspired by this story I heard on NPR last week. I wanted to create a found poem from the story, but I couldn’t make that work. Ultimately, I gathered words and phrases from multiple sources (Aeon, USDA, and Plant With Purpose) to craft this poem.

Don’t forget today is Poem In Your Pocket day!
