a polite intrusion

Little fellas like these just seem to sprout spontaneously. They’re not an intentional addition to a well-tended yard. No one really “invited” them. In fact, one might downright call them a nuisance, just another bothersome weed sucking up all the soil’s nutrients. Yet… Sometimes I think we’re lucky anything grows in our lawns at all. Considering just how dry or cold and uninhabitable some places on this earth can be, any time I see life emerging from the ground, I can’t help but be a little thankful. And besides, I don’t think it’s up to me to decide what’s desirable and what’s an eyesore… I’ll just let nature do its job.
