A New Garden

perhaps it was only when
she visited the orphanage of her soul
and mothered the lost parts of herself
that she blossomed into woman.

and because she had
chosen to claim this name
as her own,
she was given man

and met him on a plane
where their equalities mingled
and childhood was tucked away --

not forgotten but rather transformed.
