Noticed: Subtext.

I'm so in love with this time of year
that even the weeds look beautiful to me.
I know I shouldn't be feeling sympathy for them,
but just look at them,
fighting their way through the cracks in the cement.
They are strong-willed,
moving upward, against the odds,
to reach the sunlight.
I think
that I shall leave them there
and let them climb over the sidewalks
and up over my roof
and into my windows
and across my toes
letting them show me the way.

  1. You are so much better than I am. I've been ripping those suckers up like crazy, LOL! It is nice to see living plants again.
