April 16th

The sun has truly risen,
and I have found
new life.

And so
to Home Depot
I go.

To buy mulch and flowers
to keep the weeds at bay,
which I used to let grow,
but I say,
โ€œnot today.โ€

I see them as negative thoughts
that could evade my mind
and proliferate.

Instead,
I keep them
โ€œunder foot.โ€

This year,
my garden will be
well groomed
so that
bright flowers
and plants
have room
to bloom.
