Root Gold

in March, we built it.

Douglas Fir, organic soil

we placed it. waited.

in April, snow hit.

the harshest frost recorded

so late in the spring.

in May, leaves blossomed

flaunting for the cold world

their defiance.

in June, flowers bloomed

as pretty as peonies,

protecting their roots

in July, i dug

searching for gold in soft soil

and finding these gems
