Earth making beds under my nails

Sitting on the damp grass running my fingers through the plants taking hold of the ones I want out and hooking them by their roots I feel a bit like a dentist cleaning out plaque. I never thought of dentistry as satisfying work but now I know that it must be.

Sitting on the damp grass digging into the dirt, I feel I think and I am free. Emotions cannot swallow me. Things begin to dissolve making room for new blooms.

A few months ago I thought I needed a physical challenge to kick start my life. Never did I dream working two days on our garden house would give as much as it already has.
