Strict Landscaper

immortal wisdom lies hidden
among the seemingly
chaotic


in plain sight
for the open minded


forever elusive
for the fearful and sad

patterns concealed
analogs repeated
fractals multiplied


minuscule infinitum
preserves creation
upon divergence

the hand of nature paints as Pollock
brushes with the soft strokes of Monet

sepiation and vintage edges
increase the complexity
evolve the view

time reveals Gaia's genius
too much control truncates her growth
limits her diversity

the shadow
of a strict landscaper
starves the wild things of light

insists on exclusion, extinction
narrows the garden path

decays the way
with every fence
every clip

The greatest of trees
Grew without interference
Buried by time
From seed to sprout

Before it grew tall
It invested in roots
Fed on what had lived before

Before it grew tall
It grew wide and lush
Knowing stability is needed
For growth to be maintained

From there it sought the light

Interference to see things
As one would have them
An attempt to outdo time
Stunts and destroys growth

The master knows
When pursuing growth
She need only allow
Nature and time to do its work
