“When I’m in the garden.”


 

she said

 

“When the soil feels like food in my hands

and my knees are muddied.”

 

“When flowers responds to my touch

with new growth.”

 

“When a black swallowtail butterfly

has found a home in my parsley.”

 

“When ripe tomatoes freeze on the vine

drop to the Earth

and insure volunteers next year.”

 

she thought some more

 

“When the posture of a stamen, stalk, or leaf

communicates something to me.”

 

“When buds orgasm overnight

into pure fragrant sensuality.”

 

she went on

 

“When the dawn mates with dew

and rainbows are born.”

 

“That’s when,”

 

she said

 

“I’m really happy.”
