The garden has fewer flowers this year,
though there’s indeed much unseasonal rain -
that’s not enough. Water alone can’t force
flowers onto stems. Nature takes its course.
Things need light and air, that is made quite plain.
The lease is over. And departure’s near.
The lease is ending. Everything’s finite.
Even blooms must be exactly numbered.
Do plants grow less flowers for the lessee?
Dismiss the transient and the tenancy?
Or is this a farewell, just without words?
Maybe it boils down to a trick of light.
This is probably the last post for July. The rest of the month will go in packing up and moving back. I'll be offline for a couple days in transit and then back online here and at WEP in August. That's going to be an awesome month - online and off, for various reasons.
You have a great rest of July, see you soon.
