Shadow Gardener
Shadow gardener
picking seeds off the bones,
out of the darkness
what precious fruits
she will conjure

Shadow gardener
diving past mask’s reflection
through turbid depths filled
fertile with life’s shunned
unpolished gems

Gentle hands
healing through attention,
disregarded treasures
rise with flamed wings
to guide even Persephone

Shadow Gardner
rises through the veils
by the wings of her
gifted prize
no gold coins needed

She who gardens the shadows
stands tallest in the light
