Over Watered

‘Sow early for august fruits.

Soil: loose, well drained’.

Over worried, weather vain;

Suffocated roots.

 

Cradling the care-worn pressed,

Ladling the seal

Of a novice, drunken zeal

‘Pon such nascent blessed.

 

Curling stem & brittle leaf,

Steady morning wilt.

Flourishing – a tardy guilt,

Breathing into grief.
