Nothing unusual blossomed this spring,
yet, I marvel at the growth
of her resilience
In morning's half-light
I watch her fondle branches,
then, smile, reassured....
It makes my eyes sting...as if
burned by the fruit's tangy juice
He would have been pleased
to know three lovely lemons
survived winter's frost
