"Yet
the gardening is so good for me

to heave
haul
move the dirt
mix
get my fingers cut up
scrapped
in the dirt
tilling it with fingers
ripping shit up
making it peaceful
making it home
making it grow
taking care
tending..."

By the way...the link doesn't work. :-(

Yeah...I'm gardening but didn't realize it until I read your words.
The metaphor is perfect. Thank you.

As I wake I see I've been tending the garden of another. Yet it's my patch. So I'm digging, weeding and tearing out blackberry vines. It's strenuous, bloody and hard.

Turning the soil is good for the soul.
