By the Wayside
near Beebe Woods,
among some garden waste,
I spotted clumps of day lilies,
maybe left by someone who doesn't compost.
I took the roots home
and planted them
in the backyard near the shed.
in mid-spring, they sprout.
June brings Dublin green leaves
with Londonderry orange flowers
peacefully complementing each other.
The vibrant patch spreads.
Progeny of that clutch grows
and thrives in gardens of others.
All from someone's garden waste.
