This garden of mind

Meandering through
this garden of mind
seemingly chaotic
thought seeds jumble together

Which ones will take root
and reach for the light?

No apparent order or cultivation

What allows a thought seed to flourish?
A deep bed
in which to set deep roots
Love soaking through
to the core of the seed
Space and light

A gardener delicately prunes and
abundantly hacks back
removing dead wood
clearing space
for fresh new seeds

careful attention
is the gardener
Spring-cleaning the mind
using natural energy
as the sap rises

To clear a path through
To stop regurgitating old stories
Listening for what is new.
