Start with an idea,
A concept of what seeds need planting.
Your garden, without purpose,
Will be jumbled and stoic.

Some vegetable seedlings-
Start slow. Start small.
When you plant just a few
Your space will naturally blossom.
Some fruits, then;
The ones you think taste sweetest.

Then, sprinkle in some flowers.
Decide whether language is worth more than look-
White tulips, daffodils
Or if you just prefer
To find the prettiest bulbs—
Let others decide for themselves
What your garden means to you.

Ensure that you avoid pesticides
(Unless, of course,
The only type of garden that interests you
Is one that ceases to exist).

Care for it prudently,
Smile as it blossoms,
And look on as it blooms
Into something greater than yourself.
to creation.
