The People Garden

Updated on January 3, 2011

peddles reach...

pollen explodes...

calling to the wind...

to anything, bird, bee...

begging to be enjoyed...

pleading to share...

to be appreciated...

renewed through the copulation...

intermingling with its fellows...

most flowers exist in common...

sharing as they share...

knowing that they are as likely to gain notice as their fellow...

so shoulder to shoulder they stand...


It isn't true for all I am afraid...

flowers have their vanity too...

or sense of survival...


Those flowers most rare...

men covet or seek for when in the mood...

must exist apart...

they welcome fellows...

but who wants to be compared to a rose...

if not a rose they be...

if not a rose and choose to vacate...

others will pluck from about their roots...

mayhap be considered weeds...

risking thorns and other noxious peril to remove the "dross"...

or so those other plaints seem...


I use the rose...

not really to set it apart...

for there are others of its class...

equally cultivated...


then what is to be done

if not one of these

the difference 'tween a rose and any other...

isn't really a matter of Nature's partisan hand...

rather a willingness to be unique...

to believe in self...

risk ostracism...

growing thorns or crowding vine...

out of nature rather then meanness...

growing complex in scent...

causing envy amongst one's neighbors.


as it was said flowers have vanity too...

it isn't so bad when people see you as divine...

when they hold you up...

when you are pampered to be encouraged...

blossom to great applause...


It seems, however, that there is a space...

whether long or short it matters not...

'tween the time the flower changes...

evolves into a higher form...

and when it is found...

it may not be found at all...

but does this failure of others negate the course?

or does it just call for higher changes...

till the scent and aroma cannot be ignored...


Then come you daisies...

morning glory and heather...

common get lovely scents from the hills...

find your essence...

seek your divinity...

stand out...

force space...

be envied and hated...


It may hurt upfront...

yet beneficial in the end...

men may disregard...


I know of a Man, however, who will not miss the change...

and in the end will reward the growth...

with a place where all of heaven can appreciate the flavor...

so dare to be different...

not by looking around...

but by looking within...

and change.
