Year Without A Garden

Followed the dog,

walked on a log,

saw orchis and ladyslipper.

Of the freedom I'm fond.

went by the pond,

had an awesome thirteen-skipper.

Didn't plan,

didn't plant,

went with what was there.

Basked in the sun,

spontaneity and fun,

a moment with no care.

Gave myself a pardon,

had a year without a garden.
