finding vanilla ice...for her...

Isabella was amazed to see
a bunch of Helianthus
Creamy white placed
neat on the vase
by her bedroom window...

last night Francesco when did he return
she did not know...
only heard the purring mild
of the car going into the garage...
she half looked up...
and felt assured...
for she had intuitions of her own
to make out
that he had returned
safe and secured...

she heard him closing doors...
switching on lights at the hall...
the shower he went to hit...
she heard the water fall
on the floor...
and she slept off...

this morn
she did not disturb him...
went to the front parlour
almost tiptoeing
and found them...
the rare' vanilla ice'...

She looked at the bunch of creamy white Helianthus debilis...
they looked fresh by the window
smiling as if looking at her
coming from far...
with Francesco sure...

then she went near the vase...
underneath it
she discovered
a folded paper white...

a note
written by Frances
in his own cursive hand...

'Dear Isabel...
found these blossoms yesterday
by providence i think...
because i found them on bloom
at a place near the Accona desert of Tuscany!
deserto di accona...
where i went
driving four hours and forty mins...
can you imagine?
found these rare blossoms
near a bianco...
at Tuscany...
deserto di accona...

see?
life is so beautiful!
i went there via E35
483 kilometers...
running non stop...
in search of Life...
simply based on a little research
and hunch...
and got them!

so...
here they are...
for you dear...

water them...
got their seeds too!
in my bagpack
in the third gap
you will find them
in an envelope blue...

i might wake up late tomorrow
but i think i need your help
you sow...
those seeds...
the sprinkler is
at the garden shed...
no need to add manure
you
just sow
those seeds...
and
i am sure
our garden
will be full of Helianthus...
Vanilla ice...
you will see...'
