Treasure Chest

The yellow box of seeds

Sat on the counter

holding prospects of 

Happy faced Calendula, lively lady Cosmos,

Stately purple Delphinium, ruffled dancer Dianthus,  

Tutu bottomed Echinacea, laced pea Gypsophila 

and more

Which will infuse a lively, living rainbow

Around the silvered barn.

Ten square meters of magnificent color

Which will burst from little brown nodules

In the box of promise.

Oh how wonderful when the 

Spartan seeds grow to showy 

flowering plants.

And the foreboding question

Enveloped her thoughts . . . 

Will these seeds ever see

The land outside the box?
