Good Soil

 

In the good soil

grows a flower,

strong and tall

and lush with youth.

 

The gardener cares for the flower

in the good soil

and the flower

flourishes.

 

One day the

gardener finds the young flower

in the good soil

wilting, weakening.

 

Why, thought the gardener,

is my beautiful flower dying

when she’s planted

in the good soil?
