#36 Poetry I Felt Not Until

Updated: Nov 15


Poetry I felt not

until to garden I trekked

estranged to the shape of a verse

until

by green quieted I pruned

and no ear for silence

until

served I the delicates wine

from my watering pot, and

to hear flowers drink –

and no eye of artist

until

when enthralled

at terra level

how lamplit the stamen, the stigma, the style –

how brushed lay the sunstreaks of gold

down a petal’s spry face!

No hint had I how

to wait for the moving – a piece

until bees in their patient work

drew me the way.

Alive with my company

potted

we weave

the stories exhaled by

the petrichor clay.
