Water is Smiling


for the first time

my daughter planted seeds with me


my fingers

muscle memories

my mother digging holes

our little hands

dropping futures

blowing kisses

covering our secrets



with watchful eyes

for tomorrow

  1. Ah – how lovely! I can remember doing this with my mum and dad! And picking a newly grown spring-onion or a little baby carrot and eating it for lunch, was a real education to me that vegetables didn’t just appear in supermarkets, or cans, or frozen packets, but actually grew from the earth! :D
