early morning

early morning and
an august angel
lingers in our garden
speaks with the sparrows
blesses the carrot, pea,
potato and tomato plants
shares laughter with
marauding bunnies
sees us at the window
and looks toward how
we’re greening within
our own growth
an understanding that
everything is the
garden, the garden is
everywhere and love
is all the gardener
needs to know,
even here, yes,
here, within.
