    the corn is growing
    (all eight plants)
    as are the squash sweet
    potatoes cinnamon basil
    bee balm figs and echinacea
    tomatoes gooseberries
    peppers and eggplant
    (aubergine is a better name)
    along with muscadines
    peaches and asian pears
    I’m circling the garden
    along with schnauzers
    butterflies and bees
    aware that walking
    around in my garden
    is like walking around
    the inside of my heart

      Having made similar rounds, I have to smile. Good one, sir.

      Ah, the things you have growing – in your garden and your heart. Beautiful.

      That makes me happy.

      I still have four little green tomatoes clinging to one spent, lanky plant in the southeast Texas heat. Their older siblings were delightful.

      So were the yellow squash, until the borers found them, alas.

      Have a great summer, Milton.
