My Friends, Moving House


My friends, moving house
bring me their pots —
terracotta and white ceramic —
of gota cola and chives

and, for my front steps,
tiny purple flowers
dotting the dark green
stems and leaves.

They bring them to me
smiling.
I cry out with joy
to receive.

  2. A gift of goodbye - for remembrance. My mother always had a superstition that you shouldn't say thank you for plants or they won't grow. I find myself thinking of that whenever I'm gifted a plant!
