Lettuce -- Poetry 2011

Surprised – mini lettuce sprouts

spring up in a forgotten row.

Planted last September

failing to germinate

in cooling soil and low light.

Thought they had rotted away

in such a prolonged winter;

thought they would have dissolved

in a cold reluctant spring.

Here they are…

single file line of tender green starts.

Regeneration beating all odds…

Wonder what else will appear?
