The rock’s heart is rock.

The gardener’s heart is soil.

The rock’s heart is rock.

The gardener’s heart is the garden.

The rock’s heart is rock.

The gardener’s heart is his wife.

The rock’s heart is rock.

The gardener’s heart is earnest.

The rock’s heart is rock.

The gardener’s heart is muscle.

The rock’s heart is rock.

The gardener’s heart is never still.

The rock’s heart is rock.

I am the weed

In gardening, idtenity, relationships, respect on September 20, 2010 at 9:24 pm

I am the weed, overlooked and therefore more rare.

Never lifted to a cheek.

Not once brought close to breathe in my fragrance.

Ordinary and humble.
