Land

Standard

it starts with a flat surface
maybe four stout walls
containing the soil
placed within
ready for
dimples arranged
carefully amongst
its borders
seeds of all sorts
placed for future
gorgeous displays
of colors intermixed
for the plants as
surviving refugees
from city concrete
massive in structure
surrounding its vitality
forgetting that it too
was built on the same
flat surface long ago
this garden pops
with solitude and
fortitude of endurance
for it knows
It helps support the very
world that is on that
same flat surface
