Gardens and Growth

It’s been a running joke for some time.
How, with all my talents and instincts,
I’ve never kept a plant alive.
I don’t mind the joke.
After all, it’s based in truth.
But this year, I’m determined
to plant, to dig,
to nourish, to grow,
to keep alive.
I know that somewhere
underneath the black,
there’s a beautiful green
just waiting patiently
for me to notice it.
