to be as prolific as zucchini
as radiant as sunflower
as stubborn as dandelion

turning the doorknob

*   *   *

chance upon friends
some parading with drums
some waiting to dance
some displaying their hybrid autos
some discussing seed varieties

how many from back home
how many at this crossroads

still, we retreat
before the blue sky fades from this year’s harvest
