An Ode To My Compost Pot

Cooking
waste
garbage
piles.

Or,
compost
small
once
in a while.

Matka
mud
waste
mud
water.

Layered
planted
tended
watered.

Green
overflowing
weeks
later.


We pick up matka biryani from the local restaurant once in a way and use the matka (earthen pot) to compost our kitchen waste and set cuttings from our plants to grow.

We have quite a few of them now, so we’ve started giving them away to friends.
