Shrine

My Peace Lily

Shrine

Each potted plant is a shrine
to love, to time, to the work
it takes to bring rain and soil
inside so that roofs need not
be thought of as barriers to
life but shelters for all that
might otherwise perish or be
less lovely in some deserted,
parched part of an often and
unfortunately callous reality.
