Compost, Exquisite

Compost is an exquisite thing.

It’s brown. It’s messy. It’s lumpy. And don’t forget the worms.

But it’s also a great way to reduce household waste, and it’s invaluable for gardening– hence the moniker of “black gold.”

Plus, it’s quite sublime before the decomposition even starts.

Shiny orange peels, bright yellow lemon wedges, verdant green watermelon rinds. All, or at least many, of the colors of the rainbow.

Kind of poetic that something that starts out looking so vibrant and that is so beneficial to beautifying nature ends up looking so, well, blah in the end.

Then again… is compost really the end, or is it just the beginning of something new and exquisite?

It’s a cycle that is perfectly composed.
