POST 179: Basil, irises, seaweed, South Carolina, Maine

by Carol Bass

Meet Your Soul Today

have a conversation like never before

like when he brought the chair over to the garden
while you were weeding
he spoke of ideas forming inside
you could really feel the energy

when he finished the screen door
he was proud
you felt the warmth of him
when he brought the seaweed
up from the causeway
to place around the garden

you would both be freer from
mosquitos for a bit
while the irises bloomed
and smells of basil
drifted around the yard

if you’re near Bath this summer visit the exhibit at the Chocolate Church
Walking Houses there.
