He kept everything as she left it, from the last piece of thread to the canisters she used to water the flower bed. He escaped his monotonous routine by playing scavenger to her dreams. Ignited only by the solace of her life in his memories. Their love, the only constant reality, death was unable to touch.

This is one of several pieces inspired in the comment box of this wonderful green thumb. Not an actual green thumb, but a great plants man. He is charming and witty and knows his way around a green house. It seems I was rather inspired by some of his photo posts. The above was first written in the comment box of his Day 9 B & W photo challenge post and an unintentional collaboration was born. Long story short, there are more of these coming. I quite enjoyed those posts as well as all the others. They are refreshing, insightful and a joy.
Thank you, Darren, for the inspiration. Hugs!
