I’m Still Here!

Asparagus Fern 1

Haiku 66

Don’t write me off yet

Though I seem withered and dead

There’s still a life spark



My Asparagus FernΒ had flourished for many years in a giant pot on my stoep. Then one day, about three months ago, it died. (See Casualties of Drought.)

Surprisingly, out of the blue, I spotted this one little green shoot.

I guess something in there is still alive after all.

      Yes, there is another little shoot sprouting there. I was amazed at anything growing out of the dead twig base. πŸ™‚
