Momma always said ‘bloom where you are planted’. She had no idea what that really meant.
Living on the streets as long as I have, I make my home wherever and however I can. Sometimes I imagine a place all mine, with windows and a garden and walls that don’t let the wind through. Dreams come easier when it’s dark and I can’t see the edges. Daylight brings it all back.
So I look at my garden and smile. The pansies dispel the gloom in spite of their unorthodox placement.
Momma would just love how I’ve embraced her motto.
