Bound by habit

How to Design an Old-Fashioned Cottage Garden | Gardener's Path

Patterns we seek
despite our desire
to live another life
scenes we can barely touch
believing the iron pots
on the wall
might be enough
stone cobbled sidewalks
welcoming us
into home
warmed by chimney
fresh cut wood
winter
on the brink
of spring
but here we sit
bound by habit
rabbit trails
wasted time
on well worn
paths
thinking
magic
is only imaginable
while lives
pass us by
sneakily determined
to steal
what joy could be.
