Seeds of hope

I can't believe it. My terrarium was planted
in the little mason jar on Sunday with
marigold seeds. By Thursday evening, the first sprouts have already appeared. Terraria are like
microwaves--they cook everything much faster.
We're still some weeks from the really critical part, though--will an excess of that fertilizer soil in the bottom of the jar lead to early
nitrogen burn and snuffed out 'golds?
Last night I bought another jar--this time a little water jug with fountain spigot. Will it be a wildflower mix, or will I put in tropicals?
Such trivial decisions can make my world a better place.

I am amazed at how much poetry I can write when
I set aside anxiety about its quality, and just
let flow who I am, however silly that may be.
