Secret Garden: Lament For A Frozen Flower
Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force, all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth. We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages, we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire. I know the beauty of our Lord by it. It may be this sort of confusion that we need more of. So in later years, I have grown in my garden as many flowers as possible for children to pick. I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.

A balance is struck. Control, servitude, respect, imagination, pragmatism, an ecological conscience, compliance, and a certain measure of mysticism and altruism all meld together to provide nurturance.

I am, as I write, eating a strawberry, just the slightest bit tart, that I plucked from my garden this afternoon. Or, one could say I plucked it from the jaws of the so-far unidentified critter who dines in the garden. It is more likely a squirrel, and one with truly dreadful garden manners at that. The rest of the garden is flourishing, with the tomato, cucumber, pepper and tomatillo plants promising to produce soon a single plump tomato just popped up on one of the Early Girl plants this week, in fact. And the carrots are begging to be thinned. So while we all wait for our flowers to bloom, for our plants to produce, and for our neighborly critters to stop eating all the berries, enjoy this great collection of garden poems, from our garden to yours.
