In the Garden of a Mind

I pluck petals off the flowers
of my imagination
I lay them down and press them 
between the pages
of my heart  

my garden of words 
is well tended
with inspiration 
with the bloom 
of each beauteous verse 
each effortless line  

I plant a word in 
and fold the soil 
in the sacrament
of giving

I pour water
replenishing Gaea 
watching it steep
to life 

I burn compost
its leaves of paper-guilt 
curling up to nothing 
renewed again 
in a feather of ash 

hanging a wind-chime of words
in a chorus of dawn eddies,
my poetry sings, alive
