Retire To A Garden

“Victoria in the botanical Garden of Braunschweig” Mattes (Public Domain)

 

If I could design places for old people

the center: a greenhouse room

lush and tropical, the air

zinging with plant life, brazen in its

blossoming

 

Smooth paths around

raised beds, just right

for wheelchair gardeners…come see

how we’ve been

working

 

Potting benches, misting bottles

clipping, pruning, seeding

pitching pennies in the fountain

occupational wishing

therapy

 

Kitchen fruits and mint for tea

blooms for table vases

community herb garden, visit

picking flowers

welcome!
