garden fairies

(tying up the tomatoes
with one little girl in my arms
while the other snips off bites of basil
"making pesto in my mouth"

watching the garden's leaves grow-
"it's a fairy's hiding place!"

searching for beans under a trellis of leaves
sweat sticking the soil to our skin with
dreams of later swimming adventures.)
