If watered enough
they will grow—


Submerged ideas sprout
from lives of learning—

they never stop growing
while books stay spread

facing the light of intellect
yearning to extend its base.

When a beautiful one arrives,
snip it—present it outside yourself

without dread of doubters
who believe it a waste

to sit upon the earth
under the sun

feeding a mind
with nose in a book.
