“The Garden Wizard”

“The Garden Wizard”

Stirs my garden elf…
from bud to violets-bold

Bromeliads now bloom

whom in my mother’s day,

they grow mid-air!

Now daisy’s gold
ooze up from dampened earth
grateful for the share!

A wondrous magic , soon
from natures mystic gloom.


I rescued bromeliads from a neighbor who moved and left the poor things behind, blistering in the heat; unloved. All they wanted was a little water which caused them to bloom profusely in appreciation.There is no warning they will bloom.  No bud or stem.  They suddenly ‘appear’, overnight,  from deep in the dark recesses of the plant, like magic!
