To: my beloved gardener

I am your garden

Tend to what needs tending to

Prune what needs pruning

Root out what needs to be rooted out

Plant

Make me healthy

By your hands

Make me flourish

May your glorious handiwork

Bloom from my dirt

Where there’s no doubt of other forces at work

I am honored to be ground you work

Ground you water

Ground you make to rest

Ground you care for

Ground you render fertile

Ground you bring back to life

From dead things

Dead things like I was
