Neglected Garden

extraordinary in the ordinary
the garden oft' untended
   until the quiet, unplanned moments
when caretaker opens both eye and heart 
    to see the bloom of child's wonder
    to hear the buzz of love's laughter
    to gather blooming bounty

aka a girl shaves herself when she plans on getting action. It did always bother me when she wasn't shaved on Friday, then we'd not see each other over the weekend and she'd be shaved on Monday. The shaving certainly wasn't meant for me =/
