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]
