Monstera Deliciosa

Forced to shelter at home for months, many people have developed a deep appreciation for indoor plants. Collecting indoor plants has become a way of bringing nature inside and surrounding oneself with it in the safe environment of one’s own home.

Plants provide us with oxygen and give us great joy with their various shapes, sizes, colors, scents and peculiarities. My monstera deliciosa’s peculiarity is that it always develops little water droplets on its leaves overnight.

A Singular Leaf

After many, many storms,
There’s a singular leaf
Still hanging on.
Shaking and twisting
With an arthritic hold
On one bare branch.
It doesn’t seem possible
For one leaf to remain.
Today I am the same.
