the future?

the future?

for Dimity

.

.

I’m making friends

with the weeds

I spy you hiding, Billy goat weed

in your tomato suit

.

Dead heads snapped at the neck

and piled in a heap

lantana heading upwards

over the top of the shed

.

Green chickweed

colonizing the rose garden

with the wandering dew

and the Singapore daisy

.

I hear dandelions are tasty

roasted root as coffee

leaves tender

flowers in salads

.

If I were a weed

I would choose to be

a cobblers peg

friendly, transportable, adaptable

.

Farmers friends

sticky beaks

effective, efficient, annoying

everywhere

.

love the weeds

for they may be our future

as the golf courses dry up

and the wells run dry

.

Sticky beak salads

may be the next gourmet item

and the best harvests may be coming from

in between the rows

.
