The Garden 

It is old and scarred and tired.

It searches through cynical refuse, afterbirth of a thousand forgotten maybies.

The wind howls laughter of promises, whipping dry, empty eyes that seek only The Garden.

Stumbling through the wreckage of things not meant to be;

A comet held on a moonlit beach,

The pitter of little shoes shod on little feet,

The peppered sunshine of Southern wine.

As serenity escapes on the wind through desperate fingers it whispers a message –

The Garden isn’t to be found, it can only be built by me.
