tonight: garden

“There is peace in the garden. Peace and results.
-Ruth Stout


it starts and it ends
in a garden
where things grow, cultivated
and death only brings more, life
in the meantime
the garden
grows in season, cultivated
and death silences life, temporarily
it starts and ends rhythmically
year in and year out
the story told
of what will be
in the garden: hope
