Everyone should have a secret garden…

Why don’t you put something pretty out front…

says the kid.

For everyone to see.

No “POP” for the kid eyes ?

If he would only slow down and look closely…

He would notice the poppy.

And he would see that next week there will be pink yarrow.

To go with the purple rock cress.

And compete with the daisies.

At 10, he doesn’t understand

that out back is just for me.

With the tomatoes,

Up on the Roof.

Keeping company with the fairy house.
