Make me a Song in the Garden

Make me a song, each flower a tune, each tune a melody,
in the stillness of the sea in calm or laughter in its tide;
make me a song among the flowers that bring in the rainbow,
the cadence of the rising sun, the flutter of the butterfly, 
make me a song in the shadows of the mangrove, its mirror
of heaven, dropping confetti and making ripples now and then,
make me a song of the mists that gather into dewdrops,
of clouds coming down as shower or fog that shrouds like veil
the landscape, in gentle transformation of another day - 
and another, ad infinitum in the march of time - 
and I, I am but a passerby, yet brevity is the essence of all.
