Rosemary … for rememberance

and pansies… for thoughts…

— Shakespeare

A pansy and some silver lace

waited for me this January day,

in a month that seems endless —

How can it be only 5 weeks

since Christmas?  

2022 has rolled in slowly,

hovering, heavy, almost

monotone, each day like

the next, but this — a contrast,

a lovely portrait of texture

and hues, a hint of spring

and a reminder of the holidays,

brings me such joy,

and so I stood in the afternoon sun

thankful for the timelessness

of such moments, for the

affirmation of life’s vibrancy,

and for the grace of a tiny garden.

—C.L. Fisher, January 2022
