Watering flowers and trees.
If from the dust of Africa,
then maybe in our dreams.
The human soul needs more than just a place to eat and sleep.
We need a place to feed our souls,
to take in nature, deep.
A place to sit and hear the birds,
See spiders harness breeze,
A place to hear the waters fall around earth’s living things,
Iridescent dragonflies and snails from shells unsqueezed,
Patterns on a turtle’s back,
Translucent wings of flies.
A mindful place, a paradise:
when watering flowers and trees.
