Flowers are a wonder
the garden a delight:
that means the planting
and transplanting,
the weeding and the pruning:
all Epicurian pursuits,
Lucretian counterweights.

Gardening is an art:
a four-dimensional endeavor:
and time.

Gardening is Darwinian warfare:
gardens are at odds with nature:
not the fittest but the select survive.

The garden is an ecosystem:
one intentionally designed:
a faux habitat:
one that should not be:
it has no innate survivability:
no natural resiliency.

Though gardens have their cycles:
without the gardener they would not be.
