Portable Petunias


I planted a garden

filled with white


Their beauty was

a balm to a troubled


When I left that garden

my heart ached so now

I take them with me




I am a reader, a writer, and a snapper of photos

  1. “So now I take them with me”. I love that. The photo reminds me when I was a young single mom of four and a bike was my “ride”….I had a big basket fore and aft, as in the picture, and I would travel home from the nursery with a tree waving softly from side to side in the front basket, and a bunch of assorted flowering things in the back. I would ease to a sliding stop at intersections, drivers smiling at me as I teetered on through. Those were the days!

  2. There is something so soothing about putting your hand to the earth and joining in creation.
    If you can take that feeling with you, all the better.
