Tender shoots

Love small waving hands
Pointing up to the sun
Lime coloured ones
Delicate fronds

Every year heralding
New growth has begun
Resisting prunings
Wilting of winter

Hope for another year
Even when caretaker
Seemingly ignores
Their every need

Giving, as if
Love is enough
Mountain Pepper, Richmond Tasmania
