If you become a crocus in a hidden garden ...

Keep planting things
That’s what I do
It’s all I do
If there is a space
Then I want to plant something there
If whatever I plant doesn’t take
For whatever reason
I plant something else
I don’t just plant
I water
I fertilize
I trim tree branches  
I Pull weeds
I watch and
I love every part
Although the planting is my favorite
I don’t use gloves
I want to be able to look at my nails afterwards and
Know that I’ve done the dirty work and
Done it right and
Know that something is growing where
Only a moment before
There was nothing
So that is why
Five plus years in
I am still plangting
