It had been avocado green
but someone had painted it white once
in a vain attempt to make it seem what it was not .
The paint cracked and chipped mottled
and falling away now as it restates its colour.
Filled with compost and planted with  herbs
sweet marjoram, thyme ,cilantro.
heady scents infuse and confuse
as I search for weeds amongst the growth.
the grass grew up under and around it,
embracing it,
the earth claims it for its own.
Smell of woodsmoke wafts
A burgundy Wolseley serves as a greenhouse,
bright red tomatoes and peppers,
strawberrys on the dash.
Someone calls my name,
It is Jane.
I feel more alive now,
standing in the Kimmage garden
weeding and waiting for lunch.
