FERTILE VOICE

Let your senses teach
what catches you in the garden

Here is the place to bring
the lens of your eyes and heart
sounds and silences,
textures and terrain to the earth.

Plants and trees, birds and branches
leaves and moss, flora and forest
have a language unto their own.
Ancient before breath,
they have a fertile voice.

Our task is to listen
to the linguistics of creation
in a garden of wonder.
