13 Watering



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.
