Poetry Corner: Roadside Garden

Roadside Garden

By Jim Farfaglia

I stopped by today
to say “thank you”
for starting and ending
all those Monday thru Fridays
with so much joy:

your lilies opening like waterfalls,
your proud purple irises
rising above waves of green,
your fish-and-loaves sundrops,
your eager-to-please daisies.

Day after day –
my head in a whirlwind
with a mile long to-do list –
I would slow down
for the stop sign at your corner

and be shocked into the moment
by your brilliance,
by your way with color,
by the sense you always made
of a sometimes senseless world.
