In the midst of chaos I found
you, many of you jammed
 in a wire bin at Home Depot
I chose you....your stem seeking to obey
finding a crack in the box, a way
fulfilling destiny

On my kitchen counter I freed you from your bondage
sighed at your bent stem
your bare roots...sighed again.....I knew the miracle of you
the ordinary miracle of life
placed you in pot,
 a blanket of soil
placed a pillow of peat
 gave you
water and light
and every morning as I stumbled to make coffee
you greeted me with overnight growth
and I smiled
tried to share this miracle with visiting grandchildren
but they heard not a word
but went on to play their games
drink their strawberry milk
but you are still a miracle to me
this morning
sun shining through your petals
I think I hear the hallelujah choir

Poor Handsome...
for HIS food

The little ones are coming tonight from California
I wished that they had seen these critters
but the racoon and possum scattered
when I turned the light on
....Handsome got a fresh bowl of chicken
..don't worry
....I just got to get this kitty in!

When everyone is in the cart
who will be left to pull it?
