Unexpected

I fill the jug from the rain barrel

the jasmine cuttings are thirsty

I pour puddles into saucers under pots of green

And You pop out of the top of the watering can!

We continue

You perched on the rim watching me as I tilt and pour water from your throne

I was not expecting company ,

Welcome to the potting shed, thank you for joining me!

We walk the row of seedlings.

Then you leap…

Onto the head of the collie

Who wasn’t expecting You either!

Radical Hospitality

Is not about the planned engagement you write in your appointment calendar

It is how you greet your day.
