Basil

The Prompt

No! Sweet little basil, stay and thrive. Without the flavor of your offered leaves my soup will remain forever bland. Do not condemn us to the endless realm of tastelessness! Oh, sweet basil! Know that you are loved. Tell me your every need. Your every want and I shall be your slave. My tongue yearns for your rich flavor. My nose seeks your scent. Bring forth the complexity of your reality. A rainbow of color lighting up my every meal, making our food so much more than our nourishment. Live for your own sake; to reach up to the falling waters, sing to the air and stretch your leaves.
