Eating Greens

Little brother sat with the eight year
old side by side on the back steps
eating mint leaves and chives freshly
picked from Mum’s little garden.

H had sat quietly reading in his
bedroom during the eight year old’s
maths lesson with Auntie Jo.

His sister rewarded him with the fresh
green leaves which he loves. They sat
chatting companionably eating their treats.

At meal times little brother is most
unco-operative about eating vegetables
especially greens but this is different.
Mum is most impressed.

She will plant more greens for them
to eat, freshly picked from the garden.
