Perennial

By John I. Blair

Like magic
The fresh green comes up
From last years roots
Replacing the crisp brown
Of dead leaves.

Not all plants do this
Petunias once gone
Are gone forever.

But so many, so many,
Fennel, rosemary,
Tradescantia and a world more
Seem indefatigable.

Each year a miracle happens
That is so ordinary
No one pays attention
Except me, it seems.

And Im always there,
Waiting, watching,
Hoping for the miracle
To continue.

2019 John I. Blair, 12/26/2019
