Wheelhouse is the theme, Patrick says. What is that? A house on wheels? My first thought went to the wheelbarrow and I stuck to it.
There is a wheelbarrow house
with a wheelbarrow garden.
Whose idea was it? I wonder.
Did the kid climb in it and say: “Go!”?
Or did a grown-up, father or uncle,
think of it first?
In any case, it happened,
I have photo proof, just not here:
Me, grinning ear to ear
out of the wheelbarrow
pushed around the garden
by uncle or father.
My first wheelhouse.
By now it has turned white, they tell me. Several cm of drama have fallen this week. I like it in all seasons.
This was that same garden two weeks ago when we visited Slovenia for my parents’ grand wedding anniversary. They still live on the first floor. No kids in the wheelbarrow now, just a bestia on the loose.
