Artful collaborations with grasses, leaves and fern

a prettier study of nature you never thought you’d learn.

Gather plants, then ink them and press

each image on paper, T-shirt, or dress !

The beauty of a leaf master DaVinci allured,

while printer Ben Franklin cast 13

so colonial paper currency were assured !

Assyrians imprinted clay with grain

For identification and tax collector’s gain.

Your finger prints are one of a kind

Which can be unsettling – or give peace of mind.

Even cattle and their snouts!

Once imprinted help track their whereabouts.

     Should you ponder these facts and want to know more,

     come join me! I have more in store!
