A Gardener

And what say you of patience?
A virtue most slippery to the untrained eye.
Lost to most who find value in action,
the mind’s elixir to uncomfortability
and shock of being in skin,
itching to build. A fix.
What say you of stillness?
Amidst casualty?
It is gratitude which anchors,
gratitude that fathers the ground-
the foundation from which to build your ivory towers,
pillars of light.
And devotion, to the planting of the seeds of goodwill
plentiful and ripening
faster by your graceful nurturing.
It is here that patience and stillness take root. Where action that is valuable blossoms.
