The Emperor of Trash, poem from Leslie

EMBARGO:

release…December 29, 2011

THE WORLD HAS BEEN TRASHED THROUGH OUR PERCEPTIONS OF IT:
THE WORLD IS RISING UP THROUGH OUR PERCEPTIONS OF IT,
RESANCTIFYING WHAT WE CALLED TRASH AND SEEING IT AS SACRED AGAIN

THE EMPEROR OF TRASH


from Rekindling of Faith


by Leslie Goldman
Your Enchanted Gardener



I am the Emperor of Trash.
This too, this too is holy in my kingdom.
Torn tree trunks, upturned roots,
soil, cement covered now bulldozed freed.
From the dumpster, the throwaway bin,
these abundant prizes gathered
make my dominion on earth grow.
Banana peels, fish scrapes,
all these my earthworms reconcile into new soil,
raising my spirits.
The God I pray to praises my work,
says keep mending the broken wholeness
that breeds discarded people.
Keep turning up what lies stagnant, buried.
Keep all life moving.

February 29, 1984


CHRISTINA RUSSO
THE JOY OF HER FATHER ANTHONY RUSSSO

Christina Russo shows up at the EarthFair San Diego State University 2010 with BioSmart and EarthSmart Products. I first met here dad, Anthony Russo, the year before at the same location. Christina was a student at SDSU at that time and guided her kind hearted dad, an Earth lover, to SDSU. I owe Christina Russo thanks. Meeting her dad, and having EarthSmart + BioSmart Packaging as a sponsor to my work to a new level. BioSmart has been my most consistent Plant Your Dream Blog sponsor since 2009, helping me fulfill many of my dreams for humanity. Anthony, a sustainability expert with a visionary capacity, was one of the first to see a successful future for magical character Keep The Beet Media Star, The World’s FIrst Talking Beet Plant.

I Will be combining two products in 2012 to help kids and parents get their beat back with nature. They are little compostable cups form BioSmart Packaging, and my new sponsor Robert Quinn of Kamut International. The kamut seeds will grow in the BioSmart Pots, made from a by-product of Sugar Cane called Sugar Cane Bagasse.

The Kamut are organically grown and used in many products. Bob Quinn tells me that Kamut is called the Prophet’s Grain. Legends he has heard say the Prophet was Noah. We are in times now that call for a great coming home to regain our beat with the earth. Many people today are allergic to wheat, and Kamut is a wonderful alternative grain to grow and eat in many forms.

THANKS TO ANTHONY RUSSO AND ROBERT QUINN

I want to thank Anthony Russo and Robert Quinn for support of the Plant Ypur Dream Blog. I feel that we can influence a new awareness in 2012 that begins “in our own backyard.”

I will grow the Kamut in little pots here and in the soil. A big part of my work the last two months has been begin to educate about the plant Arundo Donax that is called trash, but has many uses.

The poem, The Emperor of Trash, has been coming up a lot for me lately. I hope you find meaning in it and the work of Anthony Russo and Bob Quinn.

A FAVORITE QUOTE ON GREEN GRASS
BY GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER


http://curezone.com/blogs/fm.asp?i=1749819

When I touch grass,
I touch eternity.
It existed long before there were human beings
on the earth, and it will continue
to exist for millions of years to come.
Through the grass,
I tallk to the infinite,
which is only a silent force.
This is not a physical contact.
It is not in the earthquake,
wind, or fire,
It is the invisible world of nature,
or which, I, too, am a part.”
–George Washington Carver

This is a favorite quote that appears
in “THe Tender Touch”
and other books by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
