“Greens! Who said?”
I was looking at that wedged path
Across the street
Lined with roses, red and yellow;
Cacti fenced modestly –
Speckled pebbles, black and white.
Rinsing the veggies, she answered,
“You’re right about colours.”
Appetising and healthy –
Bell peppers, red and yellow;
Salad leaves arranged modestly –
Speckled mushrooms, black and white.
