Garden Psalms Poems

Burning your heart out

Old promises(*) of Love should be
taken from their dusty shelves

and Burnt!

Every autumn, like the raking
and the culling of the leaves:

stale promises!

Burning! Giving fertile soils to
new beginning and renewing vow

breaking ground
eternal flower
prescient poesy!
