When you least expect it

DSC_0179

For years I’v tried to grow you

Each time I have failed

I’v tenderly planted you

and watered you daily

with loving care

always an empty pot remains

along with my frustration

This year I left you alone

no words

no water

no care or warmth

yet you thrived on neglect

and here you are

bringing a smile to my lips

perfection
