What the Garden Taught Me

(a Senryu series)

Clear away Winter:
after it gives up its good,
what’s left is debris.

New life takes patience:
in every small beginning
growth is possible.

Surprises will come:
hesitate to call a weed
what you did not plant.

Life calls to itself:
each seed becomes a future
rising and falling.

Let stand the seed heads:
someone else may find some good
in what’s left behind.
