making space for the light

cutting back plectranthus SAM_0935 (2)
thick green with sap
and smelling like childhood
until my skin is sticky
with memories
of secret dens
and the long ago taste
of nectar.
it is i who planted the pomegranate
hip high now and looking for light.
opening new leaves
fresh bright amongst
furry grey-green exuberance
of a long forgotten me.
