39. The Philosopher’s Garden

The poem is fresh from my imagination, and might well be played with some more. The last line obliquely references Hamlet’s meditation on worms and kings, while the leaf had me meditating on the nature of thought in the more shadowed areas of one’s mind.

The title references the gardens of French philosopher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Scottish artist, Ian Hamilton Finlay .
