for L. D.
A vegetation friendship begins as a tiny seed
to which you pay very little attention.
What you lend to it may seem as nothing at all –
a pebble pushed aside.
A bit of sunshine on a cloudy afternoon
or a gentle nudge to get it straight again.
Small, open, insignificant gestures soon
blossom in a swaying spring wind as a song
in motion or better yet –
