we move on and treasure the goodness we left behind

recently i returned to my old garden
to spend time with friends i planted
as small unlikely specimens
whose bodies now fill spaces 
i could not have imagined

much like my children

who stood and watched as i 
remembered these tiny shoots
now fully grown


in the garden i left . . . 

i left a root.

i found it in the woods nearby 

two summers ago.

i put it outside to be sure it stayed
in that part of the world it had come from 
(and is destined to return to).

i was thrilled to find it 
spending time
with a small pebble

Its good to revisit the small things we leave behind, and see that they are still there, still contributing to the beauty.
