a good day


truckload of composted manure
brought in and spread,
hands finally in the soil-
the first time since last fall
(if you can believe it),
satisfaction and ease
with these weeds popping right out
with hardly any effort at all
on my part,
gentle breeze in the air-
not too hot, not too cold,
babies tucked in the ground,
tunes in my ear,
thoughts in my head,
another trip to the nursery-
(ah, that damp, green, musty smell)
so intoxicating,
red geraniums on the porch
(gracing the living room, too),
ferns hanging
swaying on the eave,
frozen bananas and chocolate 
all blended up ice cream style-
afternoon treat for me.

what more could a girl ask for?
