Connections: April 28.18

And so it begins

genesis

triumphant bow

or nemesis

the garden that was

the one that will be

hover in mind

tantalizingly

evolving in increments

slow, heuristic

I allow a trifle

narcissistic.

 

 

And so, dear reader, with this first purchase,

begins the adventure of turning someone else’s garden into mine.

Connections: March 13.18

Someone else’s garden

is someone else’s history

I watch with stranger’s eyes

and savor its snow-covered mystery.

I might be the new owner

of the land on which it grows

but that doesn’t make it mine

as every gardener knows.

For a while I’m just its keeper

cautious in staking claim

hoping the new owners of mine

will lovingly do the same.
