today a lovely stranger 
collecting beauty
gave me a plant. 

she had grown a little tree
from a cutting - 
knowing, just like magic -
how to do such things.

because her manner had moved me,
i brought my new friend a box of chocolates
and she asked 
"how did you know?"

i think inside every single person
is a part of you breathing.

you should see how alive our tree is.
