Tri-Authored Garden Poem

This is a poem written by a couple of friends and myself about a garden. With the common theme of the garden we took turns writing one line after another, not seeing each other's work until it was complete:

Roots stretching into the earth drink in life
bulb and seed, hidden deep and sent, but asleep
Society of coloured races race to breath the living air
We are fed from the dirt-real life into our bodies
Buds, full of invisible verve
Mighty green army thrusting green blades deep into the air
My hands touch the benefit-seed has become nourishment
All this remains incipient Eden till actualized by tongue and teeth
Floating on the ground cloud, rising to the lonely mouth, filling and running in.
