a different kind of pearl

Hard dusty brown earth
spattered with the glacier’s
pushcart of rock makes
it difficult to sow my seedlings;

Sunflowers climbing out
peat pots beg for the breeze
as Cosmos delicately bend
toward the window’s smile.

Pearls of life planted
by a child’s delicate hands
with expectation and dreams
of a color and light.
