i think that it was

seeing you

in full bloom,

at the very height

of spring –

strong green buds plaited,

bright petal

sheen and shine,

all the colours

twined.

it

 brought me to tears.

I know

how very much

we were a symbiosis,

your  new green verdant growth

tied to

my  mud stained

cleansed hands.

I was the first one who had cared for you in years.

Parted.

Uprooted.

I cry for us both now.
