A Sugar Coated Garden
Usually, I'm all about planning a garden
to showcase the beauty of each season.
And I still am, but now that winter is here,
I realize that you just can't plan for frost.
Frost is the only thing that can make every single, solitary
Every neglected pile of leaves.
Every spent blossom.
It defines everything with a clarity
that the warmest sunbeam
and the dewiest drop of rain cannot begin to do.
I will post my thoughts on gardening for a winter scene
once Jack Frost leaves.
In the meantime, you'll find me wandering my garden,
camera in one hand,
mug of tea in the other.
