Lonely, cold, quiet

Like dormant seed in the ground

Waiting for summer

Food good enough for a king

And the price is right

 

Love those seeds, I do. Thank you

I will eat until they’re gone.

You’re different.

It doesn’t matter.

Where did you come from?

It doesn’t matter.

How did you get here?

It doesn’t matter.

Welcome to the tomato patch.

Lace for a queen.

Joins the rendezvous.

Flowering in field

Others yield.

No longer weed,

I concede.
