Wild Garlic

Wild Garlic

Transgressive plant 

slipping definition.

Lily-of-the-Valley dainty

yet bitingly assertive

adding piquancy to our meal

as we talk of how it is for us

this mid May evening.

Constellations of miniature stars cut from

a mass of edible foliage

hefted from a cool corner of a manse garden

where Stevenson played,

now perfume and linger on my senses

causing me to sit and savour

the offered sustenance of this day

and give silent thanks.
