My Mother’s Garden

Our garden witnesses
Births again;
This time a bit late in spring
But the mother still finds
The light brown soils
Cosy enough, healing
And caring not to scare
The new opening eyes.
The puppies, the female ones
They play, grow up and
The next year they sit again
In turn with their offspring.
The garden sowed by my mother
Is perhaps even better than
The home inside
That yet remains devoid
Of newborns.
