Poem by Ayodele Nzinga: The Gardener's apprentice

the gardener’s apprentice

by Ayodele Nzinga, MFA, PhD
i can only plant
in the dirt i got
it got to grow what
i need cuz its all
i got i am trying to
grow me a world
might as well start right
here where i am with empty
hands and seeds of desire
i am going to grow me a
world the dirt i got
is what i got
if its hard or not
if its got weeds
thats ok i am
planting anyway
got to start somewhere
here isn just fine
going to draw me a line
and pencil a sign
growing here
don't interfere
as I pump sunshine
harness the ocean
open the door to the universe
bless this
dirt i got
i am growing a world
