Is it Dead?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

The pile of discarded plants was sad. Someone had just dumped them on the side of the road in front of our house. Mumbling about the mess I had to clean up, I picked them up one by one and dropped them into the yard refuse can.

Suddenly I noticed a spot of color. Digging through the mess that was left I pulled out a pot with a bright yellow marigold in it. It looked full of life still. “Ron, it’s alive!”
