Social Isolation: Day 66

Social Isolation: Day 66
Weeds work hardest
at life. First up,
last down.
Exuberant. Humbling.
It wasn’t summer
yesterday, but today
it is. Caught off guard
(every year!) I see
they grew up in the night
over each square inch
of cultivated beds.
Be a weed.
Is that the lesson?
Or be the lilies
of the valley
I find in bloom
under all the ripped up
mess? Delicate fragrance
spiraling into the dusk
above the piles
of garlic mustard
drying on the verge.
