Odd Corner

Caladium comes up in
An odd nook, a corner
In sun and shade--
A decision made in
Tropism, inarguable.
A crowd of leaves,
Earlike, listen to a
Logic of soil and light.
This gardener never
Disturbs what is
So soundly right.

Hello Bead

Thanks for planting
Rosemary where she
Blooms so far ahead
Of season--good reason
For waking early.
We nearly had to
Pillage reserves back
At the hive, taking
Our future to stay
Alive, but now, now
There's something,
Something fine to frame
Our door into springtime.
                   --Your Friend Bead.
