Labor Lost

Ideas sprout and flourish
From careless words,
Like seeds.
Fed by gestures,
Spurred by sounds,
A thriving, healthy green.
The world is ripe with
The field grows
Unpicked, un-plucked,and
As useless as a wasteland,
Potential overthrown.
Precious flowers, designs of
Desperate dreams –
Ideas enough for lifetimes
Ignored and killed
Like weeds.
