To, daily, garden minds
weeding out malice and planting love
exchanging bad for good thoughts
working inwards from the edge of reason
Making sure said gardens are watered
as rain on freshly mown grass
or showers that water the earth
Tending to soils throughout all seasons
for from these gardens flow the issues of life
