Rain Garden

(for Lilla and Diana)

This garden is the falling rain:
fresh plashes are its shoots and sprays,
the raindrop ripples are its blooms,
the petrichor its sweet bouquets.

Dewberry buds hung on each bough
blossom in rainbows without light
to grow this garden of the mind:
this garden only grows at night.
