Poetry Corner: Garden Report

by Jim Farfaglia


No sign yet.


Just the mound of dirt I dug up,

slipped you into,

sprinkled with rain water

and proclaimed your home.


I stop by every day,

say my version of a prayer

and pull a few jealous weeds

snaking toward you.


You are nothing yet but my hope –

which means you are everything.

I gladly dream of the day

I will stop by and see


your first tiny hand

waving hello,

your green

all the riches I need.
