Came Into Balance and Stayed There Forever

The white garage
has a row of red geraniums in pots
lined up along the side
beyond a welter of tools
several ladders
a stand of very healthy weeds
and a wheelbarrow.
It is plain
the owner of this garage
the old man I’ve seen walking around
likes to putter.
Here is perfection. The white garage breathes contentment.
The red geraniums bloom their hearts out
for the old man.
I would too.
