An acrostic poem.

By t.r.h. bluePublished 6 months ago 1 min read

Did I say I love the field, the flowers, the garden

I tend, and my working hands for tending? Did I

Suggest I love these thoroughly, with single-focus,

Tending not also to the noise of thought, to the

Red rage and roses at once,

Anxious body drifting in and out of its


This is all I have to offer to the world,

It isn’t much: hands that give despite myself. An

Offering of kindness. Pruning and watering.

Noticing what I can.
