Basil? Basel?

not Fawltey and hope not faulty
probably bad timing
to buy plants

last time
I went abroad
those tasty fruitful strawberries

to someone
who adds water
to the kettle

was greeted
by straw
not berries

but maybe
email reminders
to add
a bissel water
to the basil

and green
will greet me
and partner me
in gastronomic greatness

can dream

If that's the case, I'd better send reminders.
