An illustration of three women in a garden

I will tend
to this one wild life
like a garden teeming
with growing things

dirt underneath
my fingernails
from clawing out space
for beauty and sustenance
to take place

roots climbing down deep
with every green breath
watering on sizzling days
pruning when needed
picking when ripened

never taking
without giving
