The Garden

broken and dry
the garden
tarmac replaces earth
hardened black tar over soil

natural instinctive movement
pushing toward sunlight
stretching upward

earth under pavement
bulbs and stems
growing upward
beauty and life sustained
life not seen

little girl remembers
picking lilacs with her mother
why do puzzle pieces become lost

natural instinctive behavior
fight or flight
little girl sits
remembering her mother
placing lilacs on the pavement
remembering her mother
picking flowers from the garden
