My last garden was my first garden plant’d
step by step seed by seed by shrub by
flower by tree around my babies, their
small tottering steps snaking through beds of
vegetables and flowers; my new garden
growing up around me morning day night
will be my last garden growing stepping
stone by seed by flower by tree by shrub for
diff’rent toddlers for new growing things sup-
planting old mem’ries with new ones still to sprout

a dizain (ish) for dverse poetics of 12/17/19, on hope and utopia
