eden

 

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
