Sharing the Space

Quietly, through the grass, the little black garter snake escapes. He's frightened of the noisy weed whackers cutting the grassy slope near his home. His family has lived here for years in peace, taking good care of the garden. He's watched the gardeners: Guiseppina planting radicchio, Yang harvesting cilantro, Gerhardt picking his huge leeks. The snake has watched as they've built compost bins, mowed grass, and weed whacked. He's wondered why they had to be so noisy. He's always preferred their softer sounds: turning soil, harvesting warm tomatoes and humming while cutting cosmos. He's loved the Sunday morning hymns from the church next-door. But he decides that if he has to share his home, these people aren't too bad as neighbors.
