A surprise, by nature, is an unexpected happening.
We do not know what the future brings.
What wasn’t there the year before
Now warms you to your inner core.
How did it get there? I do not know.
It isn’t something that I sowed.
Was it carried by the wind?Was it dropped by a passing bird?
Maybe a squirrel, but that’s absurd.
No matter how I’m glad it’s there.
In this neighborhood it’s nothing rare.
So I will enjoy it while it’s here.
And hope it returns for a visit next year.
I did not plant any seeds this year and we didn’t have these last year.
