Garden of Thought

Chaos controls the heart,
But order guides the mind.
__
The heart embraces what it feels,
The mind rejects what it doesn’t understand.
__
The heart is only as free as the mind allows,
But your mind is only as open as your heart can take.
__
The two are infinitely intertwined. One cannot function at its best without the other.
And so it is for me with you even when you are not near.
__
Everything is clear when I am in your presence. When you take a walk across the garden in my mind. Your feet forging a new path made just for you.
__
When you brush your callused fingers against my petals, stirring my thoughts and passions. Plucking the weeds left cluttered by the world and the past.
__
Planting new seeds in their place, so that you may continue to hoard the flowers you love best and watching over those that struggle to grow.
__
Even when you are far away. I can feel the phantom brush of fingers. Your head as it laid in the grass. You stared up at the thoughts and ideas that created a vivid sky unlike any other.
__
I could hear your voice wandering over it all. So I tentatively plucked a few of my flowers that I’d planted just for you. Gathering some seeds. And I took a walk across the bridge.
__
I brushed my fingers over the stone and knocked on the door to your garden and asked if I may come in. To share a few flowers that I’d made just for you…
