flowers

The green is
always a
surprise

Tender leaves
coming from
dry nothing

I understand now
how my mother
does it, and why:

Seems like
all it takes
is a little water
and attention

If nothing comes,
nothing comes–
something was
just not right

but when nothing
is expected and
then suddenly
there are leaves

it’s magic
it’s birth

it’s proof that hope
is never wasted.
