shelter from the storm

with much concern for her new pansies,
which haven't been planted yet,
she brought them inside to give them shelter from
a windstorm that came out of nowhere.
i hadn't actually noticed until she asked, "mother",
(she always calls me this)
"is it ok that i put my pansies there on the sink?
i don't want anything to happen to them
and they look so pretty there,
don't you think?"
well, what could i think?
don't you think that they look pretty there?
