Garden Stones

poesy

starts with

something’s-important seeds.

–tangible or ethereal–

as essential as grey

–to black & white mulch–

 poesy Houdinis explanation,

and beanstalks definition.

 

Sometimes grafted

–always grown–

poesy is hope

vining

–beliefs every meter or so–

its lines

–petals

its blooms

–verse

every sonnet, ode &

scheming rhyme

–an arrangement

with self

–plucked

from spirit’s center

–trailing a heart-shaped

bare patch

where those roots once were

. . .

 

even sad

poesy

is tended by tears

(shed into spoons)

tied into bouquet

(hung upside down)

and dried

(outside)

sad poesy honors loss.

 

poesy

flourishes in poise,

and without it

fades

forget-me-notes

forsaken

–scent bred out,

and sense bred in–

To-do & Ta-da

p’rose

replacing flowers

(missing bulb)

(minus flow)

and even dandelions

even thistle!

disdain
