Do you balance
the scales on a daily
basis, or do you leave
a little bit to chance?
Yesterday I pressed
a mint cutting into
a bowl of soil. I pulled
a leaf stalk out of a pot
of African violets, its pale
roots ready for transplanting.
In the shed near the watery
alley-way, a feral cat
turned up with its kitten
and all afternoon they lay
in a patch of sun
on damp grass.
