The Vase

     I have spent a great deal of time in the garden this summer, hacking and chopping and sawing down branches and brambles in an effort to tame the wilderness. The previous owners did nothing to tend their garden and the poor raspberry bushes are tangled into each other and the strawberry patch is choked by weeds. I have found a few glass bottles and some bricks--nothing very exciting--until one day, when I was clearing some dead branches out of the hedge, I found this glass vase in the dirt. How did it get there? How long has it been forgotten? Does it matter now that is has found its purpose again? For all things shall be made new.
