Lifting the bricks to reveal
Earthy soil speckled with:
Pebbles, glass, earthworms—
A subterranean world unleashed.
Smoky air drifting in the breeze,
The scent of dead wood and leaves
Clinging to every fabric.
A crackling fire warms the heart.
From the clutter and junk
A vision appears vaguely,
The garden lying in the wake
Of rubble and disuse.
