Beginner’s mind

Not having the gift for gardening,
 I really, really appreciate 
 The work of others who somehow achieve 
Such simple but masterful effects 
Just using flowers, trees, and grass. 
And isn’t that the gift of beginner’s mind? 
There’s so much pleasure to be found 
 When we don’t project onto what we see 
The rules and preconceptions 
Of a critical intellect…
