I hardly take the time to look
around my garden
concerned only with the leaves
that fall and blemish my floor
I let the heavens water my plants
and wish for the day when
I somehow will feel the need
to revamp my garden and fill it with
greenery and fragrant blooms
Only a distant dream and meanwhile I get
some surprises like when I saw the flowers
of my Basil plant, so small and yet
it called my attention and so I took a break
to admire its brief existence and
smell again the fragrance of its leaves...
