The Garden

thought garden

What if you learned
that everything you said
might
one day
grow up
to be a poem.

What thoughts
would you
keep
to yourself
or stash inside an old coffee can
hidden beneath the porch?

Which ones
would you plant
in your garden?

*For Aynne Johnston who wrote, “a thought that might one day grow up to become a poem” in response to a writing prompt for Geography of Now.
