To Strew Words In A Garden Bed

I'd like to gather my poems
and scatter them
like dewdrops
across acres of land
where they may fasten themselves
to the cool, gray soil
or get tangled 
in natures bend

For those
who grab ahold
with thick roots
and impregnable purpose

I'd like to paint them
a golden sun
so they may sprout
into something more fragrant
than just a posy of words

    Such beautiful images...a posy of words and gathering a bouquet of poems and scattering them across the land. Wonderful and as Carrie said, very lovely!
