you pull one over
on us; by the time we
notice it will be spring.

inside the makeshift
farmers market greenhouse, plants so
green—like fireworks.

broccoli plant flowers and asks
to be put to bed
atop the brown rice

My heirloom kale seeds
I have scattered far and wide
They come back to me

Poached eggs, kale and cheese
A winter's dinner make for
dining alone. Bliss.

crisp as the frosted winds out;
softening at touch.
