Writing On Wednesdays #14: ‘Something To Give’

This is for someone as warm as the sun.

For years now
I’ve been desperately
trying to curate
myself
into a garden.

So far I’ve only
managed a few weeds, one or two
spring blooms that
lived short, bright lives,
before they died.

I tend to the patches
of earth, unreliably
and clumsily.
And sometimes where
life is pushing through

I stamp over it without ever knowing.

This spring, your sun
warms my earth,
I won’t take it for granted.
For you, I’ll give a summer
so full of flowers,
they will fill our whole house.
