Perhaps the greenhouse needs watering.
I fling open the office door.
The smell of grass reminds me I need to mow.
I type a few words
Then delete them.
Do the goats need their hooves trimmed?
Maybe I should go have a look.
I check my e-mail.
I watch a pair of sparrows build their nest.
I should be working, but
You know, if I just did half an hour of weeding now
There would be less to do on the weekend.
Perhaps an early lunch.
I’ll sit in the sun, bare feet in the grass.
And then, perhaps…
I will give in, and follow the siren’s call
To the garden.
