the backyard, our backyard, is small


we have a garden, a flagstone patio

a cafe table with two chairs


we have late morning and afternoon sun

shade from our tree and the neighbors' trees


we have each other




i am tending the garden


the sun has ushered out the chill

thank you very much


marketa comes out with two cups of tea

and a bowl of veggies and sweet potatoes to dice


the air is clear and fine




my mother said i was good at getting what i want


that implies guile

no, i am good at recognizing what i do not want to lose


i do not want to lose this

not this moment, not this anything


this i recognize
