It Happens to those that Live Alone

It happens to those
who live alone
That they feel sure
of visitors
when no-one else
is there.

Until  the one day
And one particular
Working in the
quiet garden
when the
green bud
at the center
of their slowly
opening silence
in belonging

and they realize
at once,
that all along
they have been
an invitation
to everything
and every kind of trouble
~and that life
happens by
to those who
Like the bees
The tall mallow
On their legs of gold,
Or the wasps
Going from door to door
In the tall forest
Of the daisies

I have my freedom
Nothing really happened
And nobody came
To see me.
Only the slow
Growing of the garden
In the summer heat
And the silence of that
Unborn life
Making itself
Known at my desk

My hands
Dark with the
Crumbling soil
As I write
And watch

The first lines
Of a new poem
Like  flowers
Of scarlet fire,
Coming to fullness in a new light.
