Sweet Basil. by John von Daler

I love basil.
My little plant in our tiny garden has grown to ten times its size in so many weeks. Now it's as big as my heart, as fragrant as an evening in Provence. I sometimes sneak past it store-bought plants with their big-city woman fragrance. They saturate my kitchen with pesto dreams. The next morning the fragrance has dissipated like some mirage. The plant glowers at me from its pot. Lessons never learned.
