Hide And Seek

Here near
the geranium
little nutmeg pixies play,
hidden in
the undergrowth,
when I sensed their joy today.

You see,
you never will see
a fairy, unless they let you
look through
the greenery
to glimpse a garden party.

These little plants
seem to be
the small-leafed foliage
is brushed in passing
or the nutmeg elves
 are laughing
and hypnotic scent arises
which disguises
'little folk-a-playing'
and you 'know' 
as you are knowing.

Move slowly
green places
and between the twigs,
 are swings,
between the leaves,
 they hide,
but if 
they know, you too do
greet each day as new,
they may
just lie
 upon a leaf
and softly wave to you.

Pelargonium odoratissimum
has nutmeg fragrant leaves
