April 18th 2017

A good day yesterday.  The lettuce seedlings took after the transplant and I think I heard the soil shift as the tomato seeds germinated. Window baskets now take in more water, they no longer needing just enough to replace what was evaporated. The soil is feeding for two.  Soon baby Begonias will be looked for, bright as the sun and capable of producing their own shadow on a rainy day.

dry and barren
soil, rocks and stones
yearn for cast seeds
a measure of sadness
for spaces in my garden

fluffed and raked soil
my footprints erased

meadow and grassland
my presence in the garden
the Queen’s dropped lace
a sense of thyme
and the rip of velcro burrs
