Garden Reborn


Garden Reborn

Opening the pouch
drawstrings of love pulled
digging deep
into the root of me
infinity
removing seeds
dormant kernels
desire
trust

Planting them down
old soil
new water
tears of life renewed

Removing weeds
old memories
dead things
destroying shadows
unblocking the light

Buds breaking thru
reaching for the sky
growing into life
soft
feathery
fragile things

Fertile soil and seedlings
creating
becoming

Petals
colors
reflections of love
all in the faces
of the flowers
alive
and living
in my old garden
reborn
