Gardeners of the Soul

American poet S. Thomas Summers wrote a thought-provoking piece on his blog today. Please hop over there and read it before you read mine. The poem below was inspired by his piece as soon as I read it. So here is my humble response to Mr. Summers’ “We, The Poets.”


GARDEN & QUILL 2

 

Gardeners of the Soul

We plant seeds from our souls
In earth packed with emotion and
Watered by the passion we feel for words;
We wait for germination with impatient breath;
Then, suddenly, the buds are releasing
And speeding our hearts to double-time

As we await the birth of the full flower.
We are the gardeners of the soul:
We are the poets.
