These are Mommy’s kamias trees,
as seen from the other bedroom window,
and sunlight the way it streamed
thirty minutes ago.
When Mommy was still based in the Philippines, we feasted on her sinigang (thin soup based in lightly sour vegetable broth), she just picked the kamias fruits outside the window to make the sinigang broth — she doesn’t use any of those powdered, chemical-based manufactured products.
Mommy knows how to make a garden flourish and become bountiful on its own —-
and to make all good, living things around her grow.
