A begonia on its last limb
Sprouted new leaves today.
Even at the height of summer
it was never robust
reluctantly offering flowers late in the season
then dying back as though to say
that’s enough, I’m tired, go away
but it came back from the brink today
again as it has in the past
It will never be lush
But it will last

For the set: An Unexpected Day Off
