Mimosa by Mary Di Michele

“There’s a walk of broken tiles through the well trimmed grass
Leading to a vegetable patch, fenced and carefully tended,
A nursery for deep purple eggplant, whose mature passions
Keep them close to the security of the ground,
garlic, the most eloquent of plants,
the flower, is sticking out a long green tongue
Zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, tender peas, and Italian parsley,
the season yields.” [i]
