the gardener learns to see

“This flower.” The gardener pauses over his lesson. “This leaf.”

This is not another leaf which has fallen from another tree.

This not a symbol or an abstraction.

“Not a flower.”  He studies. “This flower.” 

Respect every, appreciate each.

“I am trying.” He breathes, “I am one gardener.”

The teachers in the garden cheer.
