The Little Patch of Greene

The Little Patch of Greene
Pauletta Brooks

Sam Greene, elderly and alone, lives with his cat in a dark, little, New York City apartment. He passes each day contently in the same mundane way. But Sam’s humdrum existence takes a turn when, one day, a little blade of grass peeks out through the concrete windowsill and begs for him to nurture it. One blade turns to many and eventually the grass fills the local park and Sam’s life with friendship and joy.
